On-board air systems have a lot of different uses: filling big RV and ATV tires, mobile repair vans, race trailers, etc.

Very Impressed
I am in the process of setting up a solar-powered water system and have the need for a 12 Volt DC air compressor. I have tried several and they do not last as they are designed for intermittent duty. One only lasted 30 minutes before failing.

I have run this compressor for as much as 12 hours continuously with no problems. I am very impressed with the function and quality of this unit.
