  • Camping World 12V compressor

    Has anyone used one of these? They don't seem too expensive and say they go to 150 psi. I spent $50 on a dual DC/AC compressor that was SLOOOOW And after using it a couple of times, it was actually letting air out at 80 psi.

    I can't speak about what Camping World sells, but I have a Viair 12v compressor that clips to my truck battery. I've had no problem bringing the Montana tires up to 110 psi with it.

      I agree with Don. The Viair is expensive but gets the job very quickly. It was designed for this purpose. I have a 25 gallon 150 psi Craftsman compressor and it struggles to top off to 110 psi. The Viair doesn't. It's an amazing little compressor!

        Boomer, how long is the power cord and air hose? I would like to be able to hook up to the Monty batteries in case I can't get the truck near enough. So would need to reach all the way to the wheels.

          You will have no problem connecting the Viair to either the Montana or your truck. I usually place the Viair on a flat area under the hood of our F350, usually near the front above the headlights. The unit itself is about the size of a toaster and 7 or 8 pounds and has a rubber pad for a base. The power connectors are similar to a small set of jumper cables and will reach to either of the truck batteries. On the Montana, you would have enough power cord to connect to a battery and sit the Viair on the ground outside. It comes with two 10' coiled air hoses. While those two hoses will reach any tire on either truck or trailer, I prefer to use a non-coiled 50' hose which I bought at Lowes. The Viair comes with two different air chucks and a trigger equipped with a gauge. I prefer the flexible chuck that screws onto the valve stem so that I don't have to constantly apply pressure to hold it on. My Viair is the portable model. They do make one that can be permanently plumbed into your truck.

            I just got mine . Viair seems to be best. You need to get RV style though to get 50ft. Hose all other goodies in nice bag. Bought mine at Amazon.

              What model is the RV style. They have a bunch - 80, 85, 90, 300, 400 but none have 50 foot hoses.

                    once a year when I grease the bearings I precisely set the G614's to 110PSI. At the next greasing I may have to set the pressure up a pound or 2, but I'm amazed at how close the G614 stay to their set pressure. I have a real compressor and a battery powered one, but other than once a year I'm lucky to never needed them except during annual maintenance.
