For more responses you could search this Forum for `air compressor' and read forever. We use one from Sears; 3 gallon as I remember.

I ordered this one from Amazon for $99.

But it would not get up to pressure so I returned it for the same model Dewalt for $20 more. It works fine, airs up the tires to 65 in our case but should be able to do 85 and is rated at 135 psi.
Bought this and a tire repair kit for our trip to Death Valley, just in case.

As Bordercollie said, they do require patience.

After messing around with a small under powered compressor I finally bought a California Air Tools compressor from Home Depot on-line. It is a fantastic compressor, ultra quite series, 89 db I think, builds up 120 psi.

It doesn't get used much on the RV since I fixed the leaking issue, proper valve stems took care of that. But we have lots of wheels to maintain and it was a nice upgrade to the tool collection.

This is what I have. Works great, can reach all tires on rv, dolly, and toad. Made to air up larger hi psi rv tires fast. Got it as last years father's day gift from amazon.com.

I was in Sears a couple of days ago and saw a small 120v compressor with a tank, very easy to store, on sale for $79. I would think you'd need a tank to have the reserve to blow out the lines for winterizing. I bought a smaller tankless one (Sears Craftsman - $40) instead just to air up things while on the road.

California Air Tools Model No. 6310 Ultra Quite & Oil Free Air Compressor. It truely is ultra quite, small with plenty of power to take care of all your inflation requirements. Tank is not big enough to operate air tools that require a large volume of air. Highly recommended.
