Before I begin this is going to be a long post. So any help is very much appreciated
Very very long time lurker here. Finally have my air horns, and my on board air kit. As you can see in the title that is the Viair Kit I bought.
Viair 450C Compressor
Viair 2.5GAL tank 6 ports.
***** 10" and 12" air horn(Got them for free) rated at 30CFM @ 100PSI
I have a 2015 Ford F250 that this stuff will be going on.
Questions I have:
Can I mount the tank and compressor behind my rear seat? Or is that to tight of a space?
If not can I just mount the compressor? Does Viair make a longer leader hose for the compressor to tank?
My kit did not come with a solenoid for the horns, I’m assuming I will need one. I have 0 knowledge about those which one will be the best?
Do I need to get a pressure regulator since I will also be using this kit for onboard air as well as horns?
Looking at the instructions that came with the kit it looks as if 6 ports on the tank will not be enough…do I need to buy a manifold?
Not sure if I can post links, but I wanted to use a footswitch to activate my air horns instead of my horn. Is that possible? I will be tying the power from the compressor, and tank into my aux switches that are rated at 25A.
I was watching a video on youtube, and the person joined the compressor and the pressure switch together and ran the “hot” wire to the aux switch. Is that a common practice if the relay can handle the load?
That’s all I can think of at the moment. Thank you for any help/advice/comments/criticism/concerns.
