Got one of these and it works great! Airs up fast, not to heavy to carry.

100% love this one. I use it for my Thor ACE, my trailer, my toad and the bikes as well. Iím amazed each time I use it, pretty powerful.

I have the 400P-RV, but got a refurbished unit for under 200. The over $300 new seems a bit rich, but it does work exceptionally well. The 450P has lower CFM & 100% duty cycle, but I opted for higher CFM and 33% duty of the 400, as refilling tires is always well within 20min.

I have a Craftsman compressor that looks exactly the same as the one in the photo. I have had it for years and carried for years in our DP. However our Windsport doesn't have nearly as much storage, so I bought a smaller unit and hope that it will provide the service of the Craftsman.

I bought the same one. Dropped my front tire 25lbs. Then, refilled in a matter of minutes. Did it twice without any problem. It's pretty quite & easy to carry.

I have a small pancake with a truck style inflator chuck and pressure gauge. Multi purpose and take little space in the storage bin of my Gemini TX. I also use this pancake air compressor to Winterize on my way back home in February to Canada and Freezing Temps prior to leaving Florida. I use it to purge water in the pipes through a brass fitting on the fresh water intake, not sure if the small portables are able to do that. They fill a truck Sprinter Dually tire in no time. And if I need to use around the house with an air nailer etc. It is part of my RV Emergency Team of Tools. Another one I have that will jumper the Mercedes Truck Battery when necessary or to jumper the house battery when a slide is out and somehow I have run down the house battery too far to fire up the Generator or run the slides is the NOCO GB70 Charge stays good for one year. I cannot tell you how awesome these two items are for emergency purposes

Dewalt Pancake

I purchased a Dewalt pancake style that was rated to 150 psi. The extra pressure really helps get air flow into the high pressure truck tires. I noticed the new models are rated to 165 psi. Got mine online from Home Depot.

USMC,
Well, I went thru the same thing. I need my 22.5 inch Michelins at 100 psi ++, and I have found that a 12 volt compressor (any brand) just won't do it. I got a "truck rated" compressor, 150 psi, AC 120 volt. My 1800 watt inverter will easily run it, so I just plug into my RV, with fridge off. Otherwise, I would turn on my generator to be sure I have enough watts. In either case, it works. My XRV tires on the Miramar, 36 foot, seem to like about 105 psi. Other rigs will be different, of course. The only problem: the compressor is big and heavy. Hmmm.
