:helpsmilie: Hey guy's. Not sure if my air compressor is working like it should. What all is tied into it (rear shock's etc.) or is it just for airing up your tires? :banana:

It's tied to the rear struts. It'll run automatically to pump them up if the rear gets too low.

If you hit the on button, it only sends air to the inflater next to it.

:bsnicker: Is the air compressor loud enough to hear when it comes on? I might need a new one cuz I never heard it work. The button goes click on the inflator panal but no sound from pump.

If I remember right, your compressor should be hiding near the right rear fender well. I'd think you'd hear it when you turn it on.

Please post back if you can't find the answers in another thread.
