I have found the 110 outlet in my truck useless. Wonder if I can change out the inverter to a powerful one and not have to modify the plug in the truck.

Curious on where you mounted your inverter?

I installed an 12v 150 psi ARB high performance twin air compressor (CKMTA12) in my TV. I mounted it to the side wall in the bed. The compressor is connected to a 5 gal aluminum air tank that I installed underneath the truck. This compressor is not cheap. It is well built and engineered. It is design to meet the needs of the 4 x 4 off road community who air up and down their tires and operate lockers. I can air up my tires with no problem and can operate an impact gun and air tools if needed. Yes it's expensive but having the peace of mind out on the road is well worth it IMHO. Here the mfg website for info:

I have a VIAR 400-P RV that I am very satisfied with performance.

The compressor battery cables clip directly to the 12 Volt battery and provides 150 PSI.


Also, comes with 60' of air hose.

I have two capped Accessory cables that run from my RV Batteries to the outside of my vented battery box that make connecting compressor very easy. Just remove the safety caps and connect compressor without having to remove the battery box lid.

I have a Viair 1007 OBA mounted in the bed of the truck, works great up to 150 psi constant duty.

This is on my short list after the Kobalt 12/120 volt unit lasted 10minutes.
