Hello all,
Could anyone recommend a decent portable Tyre pump, that will handle the psi pressure required for motorhome tyres, mains or 12v, ??
Before I go out and spend money on one.
Regards
Robert

It's been discussed before a few times, try a search, not the best search I have used but its OK.

I have given up on the plug in the cigar lighter pumps, they last for about half a dozen uses and that's your lot!

The truck pumps that connect with croc clips to the battery are better, they cost a lot more though, I am about to buy one if I can find one that is not to big.

Browsing through the relevant entries from this list of earlier forum discussions may help

(If a 12V pump is required, to some extent it depends on how much one is prepared to pay...)

To save you a lot of searching the RAC 900 Heavy Duty Tyre Inflator regularly comes out as a good buy...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ring-RAC900-Compressor-extendable-connector/dp/B000W08QZY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1550067485&sr=8-1&keywords=rac900+heavy+duty+air+compressor

Check other suppliers for prices of course!

I carry one for emergency use but tend to use my mains powered compressor when at home.

Keith.

One of the last discussions that seems to have escaped Derek's search list might be helpful. It is here:

Hope this helps.

Another thumbs up for the RAC 900. Still good after 4 years of use and accurate pressures.

Because of the way the forum’s search feature functions, seaching for “RAC 900” will retrieve a lot of extraneous references. So I searched for threads that I participated in and that contained a reference to “T-Max” pumps that IMHO are superior to the RAC pumps and (as far as the RAC 900 is concerned) better value for money.

Hi Robert, just to put an alternative option, I use this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B074G1BRWH/ref=pe_3187911_189395841_TE_dp_1

It is both 240v and 12v and does the job fine. I keep my MH tyres at 80psi (5.5 bar).

As always, the gauges on these things are not always accurate, so to accompany the pump I bought a separate tyre pressure gauge with a flexible hose.

They both work a treat and have no problem with the pressures using either 12v or 240v.

Regards,
