Postby Charles - October 19th, 2016, 2:13 pm

I bought one of these from Amazon to keep my travel trailer tires inflated properly.

It operates off the 12 V plug in your vehicle. The operating characteristics for this small compressor are as follows:

12 VOLT - 100 PSI Maximum Working Pressure, engine must be running during use.
1.06CFM Free Flow @ 0 PSI
Deluxe carry bag included
Brass twist-on tire chuck
Turn unit on to inflate, off to check pressure pressure using onboard gauge
Included Parts:

Vibration Isolators
3 pc. Inflation Tips Kit
150 PSI Gauge
Accessory Power Plug
15-Amp Inline Fuse Holder
Power Cord: 16 feet.
Air Hose: 4 feet.
Deluxe Carry Bag
Installation Instructions


- 12-Volt

- Permanent Magnetic Motor

- Duty Cycle: 30 min. @ 30 PSI

- Max. Working Pressure: 100 PSI

- Max. Amp Draw: 15 Amps

- Dimensions: 6.5L inches x 3.6 inches W x 6.2 inchesH

- Net Weight: 5.05 lbs.

It is well worth the cost. :yes: Plus you aren't at the mercy of paying for air at one of those compressors at the station which may or may not be operating.

Any small compressor like that is handy, I had one for years under the seat that never got used, switched cars, probably 20 years old and I finally needed it a few months ago, had no idea if it even worked, but it did lol.
I used to carry a can of puncture seal, but after a few years they may not work, and it may not inflate your tire completely either so I stopped buying them.
