My tires need 95 psi cold pressure. Is there any portable compressor that can handle that pressure in a amount of reasonable time.?

My compressor is ok for 80 psi, but it slows to a crawl when the tire pressure reaches about 85.

(I have a fifth-wheel, but I am posting in class A forum because class A owners have to deal with the problem of higher pressure.)

Most Class A's have 120 volts available, even at the side of the road. This makes it easier to find a compressor that is large enough to quickly inflate a large tire. Most 12 volt compressors will take a long time to fill a large tire to 95+ psi.
Harbor Freight has two different 120 volt 3 gallon tank air compressors on sale this month for $39.00 each. One is a 3 gallon pancake type tank and the other is a 3 gallon sausage type tank compressor. If you have 120 volts available, or if you only plan on using it when parked or with a generator, you can't beat the price and either one would probably take care of your needs on an occasional basis.

This is what I went to. The onboard system. Will give you more than you will every need, but just in case I also have a 2000 lb nitrogen 80 lb bottle for emergency back up. The nitrogen system is what I had prior to finding the viair system.

They also show they have RV system now.

What you need to look for is CFM at 90 PSI. Also one with approx.150 PSI max.

One with 2.5 CFM at 90 PSI or above will inflate a large 22.5 tire without waiting all day to do so.

If you have adequate battery AH you can use an inverter to power a 120 Volt compressor.

Note from the OP: The CFM 8-gallon 125 psi compressor is an exact duplicate of what I am now using: a Husky 8-gallon 125 psi compressor purchased at Home Depot. Obviously both are made by the same company.

It might be worthwhile to invest on cordless air compressor for our need to check our RV and truck's air pressure from time to time. Like the DeWalt and Makita.

I myself have no confidence on my RV's China-made tires and will be replacing it on first opportunity.

The VIAIR portable is the standard! They are not cheap but are excellent.

Air Compressor


This is what I carry in my coach. Works really quick and is amazingly quiet.
