My 12v MV1050 Tsunami compressor would have been 10 years old in March, but today something broke, and it's making loud rattling noise, I was airing up a low tire, shut it down for a cool down (it sounded normal when it was running, no unusual sounds) when I restarted 20 minutes later, it was all noise, something in the piston mechanism gave out.and broke during the turn on
It had a good run and served me well,
Now I need a replacement,
( the motor is still good, I might find a use for it in the future )

I thinking on getting a 120vac version, the Sears wall hanger version No Longer available would have been a good choice, who has a good choice on sale.


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !

I guess it depends on how high psi you need. We have a Porter Cable pancake compressor that will handle up to 150 psi. We have a motorhome.

I run the tiny Senco from Home Depot, it was the smallest 120v I could find at the time. I don't use it an awful lot but it has aired up several tires to 80psi for me over the past few years so I can't complain. It is quiet.

There are a lot of 12 volt options for airing up a tire. Why use a 120 volt option that would require using the generator or inverter?

Have you looked at VIAIR?

The broken Tsunami is Viair cousin from the same Mfg, about the same price
I have used the inverter for the shop vac, the 12 amp skill saw, craftsman electric chainsaw ,MW, coffee maker etc..
No real reason not to use a 120v compressor,
And will cost less than a 12vDc model of the same capability,
That compressor was the only "Corded" 12vdc only tool I own

I use a Fini AirBoss 120V compressor in my motorhome. I've been quite satisfied so far; it's sufficiently powerful to easily get tires to 80 psi in a reasonable time, and quite compact, and not nearly as loud as some small compressors (but nowhere near whisper quiet). It also was fairly affordable.

I've heard a fair few good things about the new(ish) little Harbor Freight Fortress ultra-quiet one gallon compressor, and it's also pretty compact. If I were shopping for an RV compressor right now, I'd give it a lot of consideration.

Thanks Patrick
When looking at the Senco , I found a husky 1 gal for $99, $60 less than the $159 Senco, physical size and output very close to the Senco, .1 CuFt more air flow at 90psi .8 verus .7 CFM, same job specs trim nailer, noise level 60db
Think I will go take a look at both of them
They are larger than my broken Tsunami, but I knew that would be the case, and I will just have to find the extra space in the storage compartments, move stuff around, trying to use one of those gas station air stations is an exercise in frustration

IME, if you need to pressurize to 80 psi, you need a compressor that is rated to go to 110 psi. For 110 psi tires, you really need a compressor rated to 150 psi, or you'll be at it all day. My old compressor was rated to 110 psi, but would only get my tires up to 100 psi, and it took a long time to get the last few psi.

I have a Porter Cable, not a pancake, 120 V rated at 150 psi. It does an excellent job inflating a tire to 110 psi if needed.

I don't remember what make or how long I've had my 12v compressor, i've used a few times. What I like most is that you can set the pressure that you want it to shut off at.

For previous posts search this Forum for `air compressor' then 12V or 120V.
