Default If you have air ride I have a question for you

On my air ride system I run a small compressor that feeds two 15 gallon tanks. My problem is I keep getting leaks on the hose where it connects to the compressor as the little guy gets pretty hot. I now want to install a second compressor but want to know what hose is working best for those of you with air ride. Currently I have a two foot long steal braided hose, it is a little old so maybe this is the best thing just needs to be replaced. When I have tried other types of plain old air compressor hose cut to size with added fitting, they always blow off after getting hot.

Any suggestions/recommendations are appreciated as well as where to purchase.

This is what I ran for all those miles. The compressor to tank never leaked.

Any chance the compressor is on the small side,
and 30 gallons is a lot to fill, so the compressor runs too long ?

Yes, on the small side. So I now have a second to run with it, but need a hose for it as well. So figured I would see what works best for those of you who have done it before.

Default Re: If you have air ride I have a question for you

this is what my setup looks like. everything leaving the tank is 3/8 DOT air line and compression fittings. the red line from the compressor is just a push on fitting. hope it helps.
