The wife got me the Viair 400p-rv kit last year for fathers day. It has everything you will need and fits very nicely into the smaller sized class c storage bays.

I've been carrying a portable air compressor around with me andi find it to be a pain plus you don't have the option of installing a air horn. The e-450 horns really is weak, especially when out running on the highway.

Ideally some sort small tank/compressor combo that can supply horn and have another line running somewhere back to mid coach and have a quick connect plug for a air hose was what I was thinking.

I also have what Dittmer has. But, be warned - do not use the cigarette lighter adapter. If it's even slightly loose it will eventually either melt the plug or take out the fuse.
Use the Alligator clips directly to the battery.
Inflating a tire to 80 PSI will take a while but will get the job done.

Anyone know of any on board air compressor systems with a small 1-3 gallon tank to be used for rv tires , bikes, balls etc...... And maybe the addition of an air horn?


I've got one that doubles as a jump start 'just in case'. I keep it in the DD during winter.

It's saved me 2x now. Once when we got a slow leak in the TT and once last winter I left the lights on at the store hah... oops!

I bought a three gallon pancake air compressor from Harbor Freight. It runs on 120V. It fits in the passenger side compartments on my 2005 Winnie. Watch for a 20-30% off coupon in the Harbor Freight adds. I paid $39.99 for mine.

I will NOT get caught without a compressor from now on. On my last trip, the left rear of my 2005 Malibu toad picked up a nail. The RV park in Montgomery,AL did not have a compressor. Only the kindness of the caretaker bailed me out. Still had to take the tire off of the car and carry to his compressor about a 1/4 mile from the camper. He also plugged it for me.

I intend to get a kit like Ron has shown in his post. The Malibu tire still has a plug in it from the trip.

Yep on both accounts. I "aligator clip" directly to the RV or chassis batteries pending where the need is. Between the wire length and hose length, you have good reach.

The case it comes in is very small, easy to store. I throw it in my Corvette trunk center storage compartment when not on RV trips.

I would much rather attempt a tire puncture repair than to wait hours for roadside assistance. Just get off the road to a safe place and give it a try.

rmmpe & ron.dittmer --- is your Walmart unit capable of inflating D or E rated tire in a reasonable time frame? Your guesstimate of number of minutes to inflate if tire is say 5 lbs low?
