I have one on order now.
As stated above. Holds air and I didn't use the bracket either. Zip ties only.

I don't normally check the pressure in my spares (TV or AS), but I always have a 3KW generator & an air compressor in the back of the truck. All my wheels have Dill TPMS sensors including the spares, so I could reset the system to see the spares as well, and would do so if I didn't have the generator & compressor at hand.

As someone above mentioned... checking the AP on the spares of both your TT and TV should be part of the pre-departure checklist (just like checking the AP in all the tires of the TT and TV as well before leaving.) That said, my TV is a pickup with an ARE Shell and I always carry a small air compressor I can plug in before departure to top off any tires that need it. (...and as a failsafe, I also carry a Honda 1000 generator with a little gas to power the compressor to air up the spare tires for fellow RVers broken down on the road as I have a couple of times over the 20+ years I have been traveling the highways of this great country.)

Before every trip, same time as I check the other tires. We've needed it too many times to forget about it.

So, guys, tell me about the compressors you carry. I have the generator, and a compressor in the garage, but don't carry one with me on the road.

Yet.

Talk to me! I want it small and light weight. Have one for motorcycle touring, but it's way too small for the truck & trailer tires.

Gnorts, I carry a 12 vdc compressor. It will run off the truck or the trailer batteries. I dont always have a generator along. My little compressor lives in the trailer and is always along.

It is a Viar 450P, had it for about 3 years now, and I am happy with it. It is was the only one I could find at the time that had a 100% duty cycle. It comes with everything you need and a nice bag to keep it all together in. I use it whenever I need to air up either the truck or the trailer. For me it is easier than using a portable 110v compressor.

I bought one of these a few years back:

Amazon.com: Q Industries MV50 SuperFlow High-Volume 12-Volt Air Compressor: Automotive

It's a pretty good little unit. No problem filling large tires. It doesn't see a heavy duty cycle, but has been used a dozen times or so. I made a few mods like. Longer power cord to reach trailer from truck battery while hitched up. Connector to match my solar pigtail in battery compartment. A few air hose mods to use a longer coiled line with fittings to match home compressor air appliances and a disconnect on the head for the airline.

I have TST on both spares as well as the AS tires.

I keep this in my tow vehicle, a Victor model 60135-8.
I also own a few different 12v compressors, but this is the best I have found

My compressor: 3 gal. 1/3 HP 100 PSI Oilless Pancake Air Compressor
My generator: 3050-watt Chicago (Harbor Freight)
Both permanently reside in my TV. I even have 1/2 Ton Capacity Pickup Truck Crane mounted to lift out the generator (when I was younger I could lift out myself, but age crept up on me and I need the assistance of a device such as this crane).

Sure a nice setup!! Need that crane myself. No interest in pairing gensets so this'd work for just. one of sufficient size

slowmover - they had a deal last winter at Harbor Freight - $99.00 all taxes in. I took the crane to my mechanic in Casa Grande, and it was installed for $60.

Thx. Was the crane installed / bolted to a big plate underneath, or?
