Now I'm wondering what the Warn Power Plant would look like, perched up front.....! Right? Am I right? C'mon, I can't be the only one that was thinking this!!!

We have had a Warn that clips directly to the battery. It's a great little compressor that we have had for may years. Last Christmas, our son bought us one of the new DeWalt 20 volt compressors. It is super compact, light weight, and really does the job. We already carry 20 volt batteries and chargers for other DeWalt tools. This is now our go-to compressor.

I like the idea of 20v portability. How long does the 20v battery last? Relatively speaking, how loud is it?

Thanks!

Hands down the Viair 450 RV, for its 100% duty cycle, and optional hand-held pressure regulator etc.. If you also carry a 50' [+/-] 3/8" ID quick-connect air hose, the compressor can stay by the battery, and you have plenty of freedom to winterize a trailer, fill tires, etc. 50' away and so forth.

Granted, the 450 does not have the CFM air flow that other units have [see earlier posts here], but that is the magic of the additional 50' air hose . . . it becomes a long linear "holding tank" of sorts.

When choosing a compressor . . . "Air on the side of quality" ???

+1 on the Viair!
But mine is the 400. Less continuous run time, but more volume. I've never run the unit more than five minutes to top off tires. The coily air hose that comes with the package drove me nuts. It's two pieces, one a hose with female chucks on both sides (yes???) and the other is an extension, with one male and one female. I guess Viair thought that the smaller male fitting on both the compressor and air chuck saved some space. However, when you put both together they immediately tangle like two Slinky's in a box.
I found if I set the compressor on the ground, run the clips to the battery, and one hose, I can do all the tires.

This DeWalt unit is not very loud at all. It will not disturb your neighbors at the campground. We use the compact 20 volt batteries. This is sufficient to top off all four tires on the Airstream or tow vehicle. If you are using the large 5 AH batteries, it will probably run quite a while.

My favorite feature on this unit is that it automatically cuts off when it reaches the desired pressure.

Mine is a Ryobi 18V portable. Does high pressure (tires) and does high volume which, for me, is great as I have an inflatable kayak. I also have a Ryobi vacuum and a drill/driver so I stayed in the family...

If it’s mostly just for topping off the trailer and car tires is the Viair 88 Enough or do you really need a 400?

Seems like that would be fine for those limited purposes IMO:

FYI here are other mentions of "Viair 88" on AirForums:

I had one of these on my last Jeep and it worked great. SUPER heavy and VERY pricey though.
