    12V Air Compressor

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so Mods, help me out if necessary.

    I'm looking for a 12V portable air compressor. It will be used only to air tires. All of my tools are Dewalt Battery driven.
    I would like to goto 120PSI. My tires take 80# so that gives me a little buffer.
    My TV is a Ford F250, 6.2L with standard battery and stock alternator.
    I have a 110V compressor in the 5ver, but if I have a problem on the road, it offers no service. I also store two boat trailers where there is no available power. This compressor will not be used much, but I do want reliability, so the HF stuff just don't interest me. I've decided over the years that I can't afford to buy cheap stuff.

    Look at the Viair compressors. They make a few that you can install on the truck. They are used for baby different things and are pretty bullet proof. Also, if you use the search function, you will find several threads on similar topics.

    I use the Milwaukee 12v one and love it. And it's reasonably priced.

    We bought the Viair 45043. 100% duty cycle. It's a killer compressor capable of anything we would need on the road. Highly recommend. I carry it on our SXS also.

    I use a cheapy 12 Volt, with cigarette lighter/12Volt plug, purchased at Wally World, a SLIME compressor. "Slime Heavy Duty Elite Digital Tire Inflator 12v - 40063". I like it simply because it is plug and play. You set the pressure and walk away, it will work until it reaches set pressure, then shut off. It has a thermal cutoff and it will pump my truck tires from aired down to 20 PSI for the beach to 65 PSI without any issues.

    Want to get a Viair but might get a Dewalt 20V inflator as a stop gap.

    Project Farm did a good rundown on battery powered inflators.

    VIAIR. No brainer, or you'll go through the rest to arrive at the best! Support a fellow RVer and buy from TechnoRV. Eric has phenomenal service and regularly runs sales on these.
