If you're trying to decide between an A/C compressor conversion , C02, or Electric, for on-board air, watch this video before you make your choice.

Not only is it a necessity but a spare pump, belt and everything else in double is the only safe way to wheel. Oh, and if going by yourself you are a strong Candidate for the Darwin award's.

I have to admit, I do go out alone from time to time. I enjoy the solitude. However I like to think that I minimize my risk by being prepared and not being too stupid. Worst case, I at least have life insurance :homer:

Chris, I will do you one better. I take a spare Bronco for parts most of the time..... Just have to distract Nobody long enough to get what I need.

Seriously if you don't have a York (or other engine driven pump) you are playing with fire.
