I need to replace my small 12V air compressor that airs my slide seal. Does anyone know of a good source?

Those Thomas pumps are rather expensive for what little they do. My 12V air pump failed a few years ago due to a broken reed valve, which I replaced, but I'm not sure I've ever used it since then. If it failed today (not sure how I would know, but if it did) I wouldn't replace it. I run the 110 air pump once a day and that is more than sufficient to keep the seals up. Timer that is on for 15 minutes every morning, with the pump running for about 10 minutes to full air.

Thanks Don. Mine actually hasn’t worked for a few years and I just use the other one to manually air it up every now and then. Do you have that unit on a timer?

Yes. I mounted a 110V receptacle on the wall behind the big pump, and ran the power to it. Put a plug on the wires from the pump, then installed a digital timer that has battery backup so it doesn't lose time during the period when no power is flowing because pressure is up. I used this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0020ML744

I only need it once a day, but this timer could do as much as 8 separate times per day if needed due to leaks.

Check out Viair pumps. Reasonably priced and 100% duty cycle.
