I would like to purchase a small portable air compressor that could be used to bring the tires on our RV back up a few pounds to the 80-85 PSI range prior to heading out on a trip or while on the road. Anyone have any personal experience with a particular brand and model that they could recommend? If you know of one that could also be used to blow out the water lines during the winter that would also be a big advantage. Thanks for any and all feedback.

Sears usually has their small 120 volt model for around a hundred dollars or less. For around 60 dollars you can get a nice 12 volt model that will do the same thing.

Adding air into a tire to get it up to 80 psi requires a compressor that can deliver over 100psi. Most small compressors require some patience building up 100psi. I have a 2-gallon 120 vac Campbell Hasusfeld that can do it, but just barely. Harbor Freight sells a knock-off that looks just like mine. Inexpensive 12 volt compressors may not be up to the job. Check the specs, try it out, and return if it can't do the job. There was a recent thread abut this,on this forum. BTW, gas stations often can't provide 80 psi.

I bought a Slyme 230 psi model at Meijer a few years ago. It does a good job.

A few years back, I bought a Husky Air Compressor from Home Depot. It has wheels and an extendable handle to roll it around, and allows you to set the pressure you need. Stops when you reach that pressure and I've found it to be within a couple of pounds.


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.
