Rugged Geek and compressor

Anyone have a Rugged Geek that has also used the RG 150 compressor that is available to use with? I was wondering if it has enough power to inflate a motorhome tire.

They're a really nice little compressor: I keep one in my Spyder!
But I sort of doubt that it has the output, to deal with larger tires...

(My bike runs with just 20 psi in the front tires, and only 26 psi out back...)

Personal opinion you need at least 1.5 cfm @ 90 psi to inflate MH tires (16 % 19.5"). This is what I have used for 3 years. It stows under the dinette seat.

Is that powered by 110, or 12 volt?
It sure looks like a killer little setup!

It is 120 volt. Weighs 36 lbs. You can use an extension cord to move it around, but I bought 30 ft of 1/4" air-brake line and put couplers on each end. The little thing is so noisy that I can't tell if air is going into the tire or not, so I leave it under the outside plugs under the TV. I only have a 1,000 watt inverter so the inverter won't power it. I built a little cubby behind the drawer in the end of the forward dinette seat and that where I keep it.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like it might have a problem filling an 80psi tire.

It probably would...
But they're still a really handy little device!

We use ours on:
The Spyder
Our Garden Cart
A Wheelbarrow
The Lawn tractor
And the Snowblowers!

They're so portable and easy to use, that they're FUN!

Compressor is on at 95 psi and off at 135 psi. The output regulator settings are 0 to 100 psi.

Jim, what does your last statement mean?

The previous post questioned if it would top off 80 psi tires. When on - the compressor charges the tank to 135 psi (preset) and remains off until the tank pressure decreases to 95 psi. At 95 psi in the tank, the compressor will start and stay on until the pressure reaches 135 psi. The tire fill hose has an independent pressure regulator with separate pressure gauge. This hose also has a shut off. Separate from the tire fill hose is a quick disconnect (M style).
