Guys,
Has anyone made an OBA system or portable compressor using a 12v motorhome air ride compressor, or one found on Cadillac's, Lincolns, etc?

I can get one of these V twin 1970's GMC motorhome compressors cheap.
Dunno what the CFM is, [ have not found that spec yet anywhere ] but they do up to 150 psi.......not that I'll ever need that psi.

For airing up 33" tires, not for running air tools, etc.

YES, I know you can buy cheap 12v compressors made in China, they're just not my thing. This thread is about using air ride compressors or similar for the project.

Lets hear about what you've made for air, and if it worked well or not?

This is what I did, works really really good and it cost less than $100. One is the MV50, the other is a no name brand from amazon that I got for $30 shipped. Takes me 2-2.5 min per tire to air up 35's. I do not use an air tank because I don't want to drain it

I don't care if it take 3-4 mins to air-up each 33" tire. Thats just enough time to have a bite to eat and a cup of coffee after a days hunting.
