My solution to your problem was HARBOR FREIGHT had 12volt tankless compressors on sale a while back and I bought one.I can open my battery box and hookup with alligator clips and the hose and cords are long enough to reach Trailer tires or TV tires when on the road. Its in a nice plastic case and stores easily. I carry it in the truck at all times in case I have a problem even when not towing.

I recently purchased a Craftsman 4 gal. 3/4 hp Pancake Air Compressor from Sears and my Honda EU2000i generator has no issues running it. Overload light never came on and generator never ran more than about 1/2 throttle.

You may want to test it. I had one simular that would not inflate my truck tire to operating pressure. 75-80 PSI. It had a hard time inflating the trailer tires as well. I gave it away. I used to carry a 2 gallon 120VAC compressor and generator. I now have an on board 145 PSI compressor.

Ive got a Porter Cable pancake compressor. It runs just fine on my Yamaha 2400. I used it just last week to blow out the water lines, etc. It's this little guy:

Delta Machinery|Porter Cable Product Details for 150 psi, 6 gal Oil-Free Pancake Compressor - Model # C2002

It weighs nothing, has two quick disconnect outlets for e.g nailguns or air hoses, can't weigh thirty pounds. Found one on sale new for $120, so shop around.
