Thanks for they help boys.

I am making an effort to "close out" each of these posts with a result.

Went to the local hardware store...picked up a standard female fitting and mounted. Here is a quick pick before final mount.

Again, thanks for the help

My question relates to this air chuck.
Have had a Viaair air compressor for 10 years and it's decided to die.
For the first time, I decided to use the air chuck that is mounted on the driver's side small door area.
Bought the required fittings, tried it out today and it didn't seem to want to fill air hose.
So started the bus, waited till the drier spat and tried again.
Didn't seem to want to add any air.
Started the engine, thought that maybe I need the engine running for the air compressor to pump enough air to a tire.
Didn't seem to add any air that I could see, altho the hose was pumping out air.
Does the engine need to be running and if so, does it take quite a while to add a couple of pounds?
Anybody else use this fixture?
Cost for parts was $99 as opposed to $400 for a new Via Air.

Last year I bought a V-Air compressor from 4wd.com for under $200. Far superior to the Thomas compressor. 10 years is good.

There is some pressure loss at the chuck due to check valves, etc. What are your tire pressures, and what is the pressure in the aux tank with the engine running?

Hi Ron,
Running 110 on the front and 100 on the rears.
My tank pressures are around 100 psi with engine running and 35 psi on the tag axle pressure.
Judging by your question, could it be the engine compressor isn't powerful enough to pump to 110 on fronts?

Ahah. That's why you aren't getting any air into the tires. I'd have thought your engine compressor pumped out more. Your bus may be different. The regulators I've had were set at 125 psi and 135 psi. I could get air into a 95 psi tire, but no luck on a 115 psi front tire.

The easiest way is to buy a shop compressor. My V-Air shuts off at 80 psi, but will go higher. I think their limit is 150 psi, but the volume is very low.

Ryan, I think you could cut the Z shaped copper tubing front and center of the picture and fit 1-2 more couplers in there.

Thanks Ron.
I would think a shop compressor would be noisy but will check into it.
I see Amazon has the RV400 for a little over $220.
Might get that, altho will check on a shop compressor first.
Thanks.
