Mystery compressor.
 
In the 2nd compartment back on the roadside of my 2001 Lxi, There are 2 compressors. One is a 12 volt for the toilet and I think the other is a 110 volt. How do I turn on the 110 volt compressor. I've tried the switch marked "Compressor Master" on the instrument panel with no luck. Thank you.

That's the switch for the 110 compressor. If that doesn't turn it on, perhaps the compressor is broken. Of course the air pressure must be below the cut on pressure. Can you use a Multimeter? It would let you know if you have power to the pressure switch and if that power is getting to the compressor motor.

There is a box with a switch . Follow the air line , elect and see if it has tripped . Mine is in bay 1 drive side ceiling . Hope that's all it is for you .

Using the multi-meter is on my list today Rick.The wiring to that compressor is tough to get to. Just thought there might be another switch somewhere other than the one on the instrument panel. Thank you.

mine has a leaver on it .

Al, If it's a small lever on the side of a box with a black cover and a 1/4 inch air line going to it from the compressor, that's the pressure switch.

Thanks Rick. Again!

Rick , I believe you are correct but for whatever reason it did trip on mine once and when reset she worked again . I was very happy . It made sense that there should be a fuse or something to protect it and I was surprised when that turned out to be the issue . If you have the same on your LX you could switch it down and see if your compressor still runs I guess . I'm not at ours so I cant test it .
