Depends on how much difference there is between the three. I have 4 that I use regularly and they all agree within 1-2 psi.


Which one do you use the most ,or do you just switch off from one to the other
I have one that stays in the truck, 2 if you count the pencil type gauge for the duallys, and three others that stay in a drawer in the garage. And yes, I just grab whichever one comes to hand. But I had all 4 of them out yesterday, and checked them against each other. All were exact, or within 1-2 psi.


I just need one , if I had four I would be looking constainly for one, I have several pair of reading glasses ,and can never find one [emoticon] I should practice the same as I do with that one air gauge , keep it the door pocket of my truck, and I always make sure I put it back.

Well, we have kids, grandkids, and great grandkids, and everybody needs to check their air pressure now and again. If I only had one gauge, it would disappear in short order. [emoticon]

"....and everybody needs GRANDPA to check their air pressure AND PROPERTY INFLATE THEIR TIRES now and again...."

^^^ My version....but I also adopt the "put one in every spot I might need it" approach.

I bought a couple of liquid filled guages and made my own. I use the low pressure one mostly on my spray booth for airbrushing, but I can check tire pressures with either one. I also have one of the large stick ones that I keep in the truck at all times.

Turns out the Viair Compressor I ordered includes a dial type gauge. For what this unit costs, it better be accurate.


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

I have two expensive stick gauges. they are hard to seat and the pressures are not accurate. The indicator stick is in tight in both.
I have an American made sccrew on for both tires at the same time so both get the same inflation the gauge is accurate but it is nigh impossible to screw it on the inside tie valve and they leak as you unscrew them.Next time i see a Snap on I will inquire what he has if it is near a bank.
I have dial gauge on a hose that attaches to my onboard air compressor, that shuts off at 125psi. Impossible to get 110 lbs in fronts with it or with it. And on Freightliner semi that tried to assist in Shawnee,either.

Yeah, I had to get a compressor rated to 160 psi to enable to inflate my G-rated trailer tires to 110 psi. The 125 psi compressor just wouldn't cut it. Although not such a big deal anymore as I run my tires down at 95 psi now for a better ride.
