I have a 12V Slime Air Compressor. It fills my 65 psi tires with no issues. I had a blowout in the middle of absolutely no where, broke the bead on my truck. After patching the tire it had enough power to pop the bead back into place.


I think this is the unit I have. https://www.amazon.com/Slime-Power-H...%2C207&sr=8-14

I have a real AC at home, this just keeps me on the road, and take virtually no space.

I installed one in the space next to my frig in the outdoor kitchen. It's not heavy duty by any means but works great for truck and TT tires, bike tires, inflatables and the best thing, I got a hand-gun with a long nose on it to blow off the top of the slide before putting in and blowing things off in general before packing.

I take my motor home into sand dunes and often have to air down my tires so as not to get stuck. I previously had a smaller compressor but decided to upgrade to the Husky. It works great to air up tires that have been dropped to 25 pounds. Works much quicker than my old small unit.

Your family and neighbors will really appreciate a California Air Tools compressor. First time I turned mine on, it was so quiet I thought it was defective.

Air Compressor

I have the pancake one from Harbor Freight, works great, get a 450 watt inverter and you will have a great set up for less than 80 bucks.

Sad to put the toys to bed, always next year

Viair. It is compact and fits under the rear seat of my truck and inflates to 120 psi.

Viair, we beat these things to death on the trails off-roading. Controlling air lockers and airing up flats and running air tools off Powertanks. It fits in my trucks toolbox so I use mine all the time for bicycles, other people’s tires, strollers etc.
The best compressor is the one you have on you when you need it and the Viair is so small and powerful there’s no need to not have it with you always. I keep one in each vehicle and never need to hope the battery is charged or give up more cargo room.

Frustrated with 12v

I have had a lot of trouble 12v compressors. They are slow and eventually burn out. After one burned out on the road, I decided to get a 120v since I always have a generator. I picked up a Senco PC1010N at Home Depot, and it has been great. It is small and very quiet.

Since then, I went a step further and installed a Viair compressor and tank in my truck. A also installed an air chuck in the bed of the truck. This setup has been great.

+1 on Viair. Couldn't be happier.

I carry a small Porter Cable Pancake Air Compressor rated at 150 PSIG: — 0.8 HP, 6-Gallon, 2.6 CFM, Model# C2002-WK. I pump it up to 150 PSIG and it will hold that charge for a couple of weeks. Holds enough air to top off any low pressure tires.

Thanks to this forum I just received my Viair 88P yesterday from Amazon. Haven't tried it out yet, but looks like it will get the job done. I had a Slime air compressor that worked off the cigarette lighter. Was a disappointment and a waste of money.

You’ll love it. If you didn’t get the 6-foot extension hose you might consider it. It really helps.
