Tire pressure

How do you inflate your RV tires? Is there a portable, small electric pump that can be used to inflate your RV tires ..... Maybe 12 volt? TIA

Check out Viair compressors. ive read good things about durability. They make 12v compressors in the 150-200 psi range that connect directly to your truck battery.

I wouldn't think a small cigarette lighter device will have enough power / pressure to work

I have a 12v compressor by Slime, I really like it. Our max pressure is 50 psi, and it is quick.

I added a couple 12v outlets to make tire inflation easier, for example there is one now in my refrigerator mechanical compartment.

I went with a small Husky 120V inflator from Home Depot. The cord on my Slime 12V inflator is too short to reach my trailer tires. (In fact, it's too short to reach my truck tires - but that's a different story). With the 120V inflator, I can hook up an extension cord either from the CG pedestal or from the AC outlet on the side of my trailer. Doesn't work as fast as the compressor I had when I own a "stick-n-brick" house, but it also doesn't take up 8 cubic feet of space!

My choice was to buy a small 120v plus a inverter that would handle it. The inverter has 120v outlets that will handle an extension cord. Have things covered ether 12v or 120v.

I just got a 120 volt from Harbor Freight. That and an inverter are all I need. I was tired of how long it took a 12V to do the job.

This one is fast, been using mine for 4+ years now with stellar results.
12 volt-120 psi. Comes with nice hose and storage bag.
And to my amazement, the psi dial gauge is spot-on accurate!

+1 - have a Viair and love it. Clips onto the battery, has far more grunt than any cigarette lighter compressor I've used in the past.
