Title: On board air.
Post by: TeguTerra on February 13, 2015, 09:28:38 AM
So I'm wanting to do a on board air setup.   Was looking at the viair 88P and then a coworker has 2-1 gallon tanks he says he will give me,  should that work pretty good or should I go with a bigger tank or different compressor?   Up for suggestions. 
Thanks

Hey sorry I didn't answer your question in the other thread. But I will be running a 2.5 gallon tank and unsure on compressor. Is the 88p a portable model? From viairs website the 325c looks to be the best option

It's portable but looks like it has +/- for like a car battery so not sure if that wiring can be changed to hardwire to a switch or not.

And I think I'm going to go with my coworkers 2- 1 gallon tanks and set them up as duals beings he said I can have them for free.

Are you going to be running any lockers? the one I've seen used is the VIAIR 10007 Constant Duty OBA has everything you need to install.

I picked up 2x viar 88p a pressure switch http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0043XDLEM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and 2x30 amp relays.  I used my rock sliders as tanks, works pretty well.  But way more work than just buying a system.

I was looking at those remo1991, I think right now I may go with a smaller system until I get a locker.   I'm getting the tanks for free and figured I would pick up maybe 1 or 2 of the viair 88p and run that.   I know I would need amp relays and I want a switch to cut power to it so I don't have to worry about it kicking on all the time,  what else should I probably get for hookup?

I don't know anything about electrical sorry. I don't want steer you in the wrong direction. That's why I always go with kits and just follow the directions.

I gave you the link to a pressure control switch, run it in line with the on off switch to the relay.  That's really all there is to it.

What Avi said. I had a setup from Viair and it had a gauge on it and the lines has a pressure switch/sensor and would cut off when it hit 150psi. It's not hard, hardest part it figuring out where to mount it and running everything and doing a clean installation.

I nearly forgot, I bought a face like this one to install in the dash.  http://www.amazon.com/Viair-90087-Illuminated-Single-Needle/dp/B000YC42S0/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1423987526&sr=8-5&keywords=viair+pressure+gauge
