Reading the thread about what extras to take on a trip got me to thinking about the comments about electric tire compressors. Has anyone tried, or heard about anyone, who has converted the compressor on a horn like the Stebel Nautilus into a tire compressor? I haven't done any web searching on the issue, but it seems like something that might be possible. A two-way valve, one side horn, one side tire...........Hit the button and top'r off!

Funny you should say that as I was thinking the same thing the other day. You would need to check the pressure generated by the Stebel compressor to see if it was enough to inflate a tyre. Another thing that worried me was how the compressor would stand up to long periods of running, it is after all just designed to give a short blast when needed. :confused:
