tire pressure

Just wanting to know what you all use to keep air current in tires of AS and TV while on the road.
just took delivery 6/30/2105 of 25ft FC, excited and happy!
Do you use generator or compressor and if so which is preferred?
Have not seen anything regarding this on forum.

I have a couple of air compressors, a small DC unit and a 3 gallon oil less light weight unit. Both are from Harbor Freight.

I use this: http://mobile.viaircorp.com/#2664

Love it. Forum member Bob Cross taught me a little hack to connect to my truck via the 7-pin connector for 12v power. Works great - quick to top off a few pounds on truck and trailer tires.

I use a bicycle handpump with manometer ( or what you call it , I am from Holland, the bycycle country).
Its only to fill a view psi so wont take to long.
the large part when totally empty , you then do at a tank station , and inacuracy is then not such a bic issue.

Those handpumps are pretty accurate , a race bycycle tire needs also up to 120 psi, and these pumps are more stable to handle then a footpump.
Mostly adapters for car tires are included with those pumps.

But dont go for the cheapest, quality has its price.

Sorry if pump is not the right word, correct me then.

Not the Best Thing

But it does the job. I have found too many gas stations have set the pressure limit to 50-55lbs at their air pump. That helps me not! Bought this off of Amazon. It's not too pricey, and not too cheap. A good "middle of the road" item that comes with its own carrying case.

Sea ya down the road,

If you buy a pump, be sure to get an oil less pump. I use mine to blow out water lines for winterization and don't want to put oil in my water lines. I carry a small 120 V air compressor in the truck. Great for topping off tires and blowing out water lines.

Viari 400P-RV Amazon.com: Viair 40047 400P-RV Automatic Portable Compressor Kit: Automotive

450P is a beefier version with a higher price.

RV versions include extension hose. Bullet proof and just does the job. Not sure I would want to run it from the 7 pin connector. Pulls a bunch of power if you need the pressure. 30amps max. Way over the limit of the 7 pin connector.
