Hey all. So from my other posts you can see I’m redoing my whole ride. I am moving the tanks and compressor to a tool box. But leaving the horns in the same place.
But, I thought about something the other day, Harbor freight sells like a 11 gal air tank for 30 bucks or so. Right now, all I have it a a 2 gal and and 3 gal tank. Obviously the compressors are not rated to fill more then 5. So I was thinking about getting one of those 11 gal tanks and having it so when I run out of air, either, use the spare tank to fill the other two, or use this spare tank to run the horns while the other 5 gal is filling.
The only thing is, I would have to use a valve of some sort to shut off the air supply to this spare tank. Or if I were to use it to run the horns, then I would have to run a tee in the main lines running to the horns. If I were to the spare tank to fill the main tanks, it would equalize the system, and those 11gal tanks are only rated for 125 psi. and I run my setup at 150… Which the horns will work at 125 psi, I just dont know how much air I would loose when they equalized .
Which is a better idea, running the spare tank to fill the main tanks faster, or use the spare tank to run the horns while the main tanks are refilling??
I can stop at any gas station that has a tire refill and top off the spare tank…
