Also consider buying quiet compressor. I bought one for my diesel pusher that has air suspension and brakes. Instead of running Detroit, that wakes everybody in 1 mile radius, I use the compressor inside storage compartment to build up the pressure. Takes 20 minutes, but with usual campground noise I can not hear it 15 feet away.
Those 12V $10 or $20 compressors are disposable items. They pump 200 psi for first use, 80 psi on second tire and max at 20 psi on the third use. If you need one that last, spend $120 for Firestone 12V compressor design for air bags.
