We ran across the same problem, with oru compressor factory set at 125 psi, it jsut wouldn't do it. Newmar has a pressure doubler or did from the factory near the compressor. Others are available, but hard to find. I've been meaning to install a Newmar doubler for years and have yet t do it. A couple or three hundred dollars and a few minutes it seems is about all that is required.

I use this one. VIAIR - 40045 400P-Automatic Function Portable Compressor As previously mentioned, between the hose and power leads, I can reach all of my tires.

VIAIR X3

It has Heavy Duty Battery cables and a long hose to easily reach all my tires. I had mine since 2012 and it works flawlessly every time.

Viair 88P for me. Tires only require 70PSI and snall RV has limited storage. Viair is small, reliable, and high quality.

I have a Crafstman 120 volt pancake style (6 gallon) 150 PSI rated (160 actual) that does a great job on my 110 PSI tires.

It (with the help of a Harbor Freight 12 ton air/hydraulc jack-jack) can pick up the motor home for maintenance tasks.


Home is where I park it.

Most all of the major companies that make battery powered tools now have air compressors. If you have any of these tools you can buy the air compressor that goes with the other tools you have.
