on board air question

i've heard of people adding accessory air hoses to the engine driven air compressor system, but i've never really seen it. it sounds appealing...... is that something that works well? safe to install? where and how would you install it?

not sure if i need it or not..... just thinking the ability to air up a tire would be a real nice feature.

Re: on board air question

I'm looking into this as well. I know porkchop added a quick connect to one of his tanks. I think it was the main tank.

Re: on board air question

You go off the main tank. Dont expect to get much done though. The recovery rate is pretty slow. You could use an impact gun and take a wheel off though.

I'll post pics of mine. Super simple. It is inside the bus and I can use it to run a nail gun, fill a tire, etc... Like Opus said, the recovery rate is pretty slow, but it is still nice to have.

Re: on board air question

I think I just used the airline from the stop sign. I like having it in the bus. This is right under the dash.

Re: on board air question

Something I also want to do, but I'll need to figure out another tie in, especially since I also want to tie in dual airhorns. My ride's got electro-mechanical stop arms instead of pneumatic.
