Thanks guys....you've been great answering my quetions!
Either will work well and I have used both with my 12VDC compressor. The only thing to consider is the recharge rate of the battery and how it will be re-charged. If you're on the road, I would consider using the TV battery since it will be recharged fasterwhile your motor is on. If parked at a camp ground and plugged in to 120VAC, the trailer battery will be re-charged by your converter.
If you have a short power supply cord (nothing personal here), then which ever battery is closest
