      Eh, it only has a 1-yr warranty. I might have to stick with the HF clone of it (which currently is dead with a faulty switch).

      I do like the 60' hose though, I have to pull mine out of the trailer box and use the power cord length to stretch back to the rear axle on the 28'.
      With the ext warranty, it's less than 1/3 the price of the Viair with twice the warranty length. And nowhere near the claimed duty rating, although it is a tough little unit vs the cig plug styles.

      The flaw with theirs is, it has a thermal overload built into the switch that fails over time.
      Also, If you hook it to a tire and THEN turn it on, it blows it's 35a fuse (good luck finding those in plentiful amounts at the auto parts places).
      Turn it on 1st, THEN hook it to a tire, it works fine. 'dunno;

      But it won't do a 40min extended run like the Viair claims. But 10 mins or so is enough to top off a 235-85 that's at 50%. Which is what I usually see running the Duravis R250s. There so tough and rigid, you can't tell they're flat until you load the trailer. 'uhNo
      which is never fun.

      I see what you’re saying. I have read a lot of good things about them. I may end up getting a truck box to fit all the crap I cary. Looking at a Home Depot special at the moment but we will see.
