    Tagged. Curious about this as well. I wonder how slow the compressor would be.

    No, but I did build a custom rig where I joined two Amazon compressors together with a 1/2 gallon tank for tires and my air horn. It will make you wet your pants and I only have one horn.

    You really need something fast with larger pistons to move air to get much of anything out of a DC air compressor.

    The larger Harbor Freight ones move air pretty good. The rig I built will take my 33 x 11.5 from 15 psi to 40 psi in about 4.5 to 5 minutes. I put a automotive fan on it to cool down the compressors.

The air dial has a precision bleeder on it that works well for setting the air bags. I probably have about $250 or so in it. I refused to pay what Viair and others wanted for their rigs. So I joined two cheap Amazon compressors together. Each with back flow valves. I also put a distribution block if/when I decide to put in air lockers. You can't see it in these pics but I have hard cut offs on top that I can get to easy if I have an issue and I wired in a cheap wireless remote. A toggles the air compressor and B toggles the fan on an off.
