I use the air compressor for airing-up after taking the Jeep Wrangler TV off road with aired-down tires.

Thanks, all. I made the decision to go with the Viair 450 P. The 13 lb weight and quick top off rate seems like what I want. I'll let you know how it goes. I'll be topping off at my storage facility and thereafter when needed. I'm tired of looking for stations I can get into with working compressors that are free. I've probably spent the cost of the Viair in quarters.

Good answer and good for you. Some seem to forget to re-inflate their tires after going off road.

Follow up....I bought the Viair 450 P and could not be happier. I topped off all 8 tires with ease and quite quietly. At 13#s
I will never travel without it.

Just to add, I got a Senco PC1010 1-Horsepower Peak, 1/2 hp running 1-Gallon Compressor https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000AQK78..._GYy6xbCXW49WP
Am pretty happy with it. Heavier than the 12V pumps but works very well on the road. I used my AS's inverter to power the other day when topping up tires and it worked well.

Here is another option. Looks like the Viar but from from Harbor Freight 64.99. Probably made in the same factory.

Make your own decision but $65.00 V 300.00

I assume you mean this one?

http://www.harborfreight.com/12volt-...sor-69285.html

IMO the specs are probably different from the Viarr 450, but they are not spelled out in detail. Some of the reviews suggest that this unit does not have a 100% duty cycle, and that the thermal overload protection goes off somewhat easily.

Good price though, with many positive reviews.

Has anyone found a lightweight portable compressor that runs runs on AC? From what I've seen AC compressors generally have a higher max psi rating.

My truck has an AC outlet as does my 2017 25FB (1000 watt inverter), so I'm covered on the road and in RV parks/campgrounds with electrical hookups. I'd rather not have to deal with DC alligator clips on the trailer or truck battery.

Also, 2017 Airstream Internationals don't have cigarette lighter style DC ports so the truck would be the only DC source.
