    I have one of these and it is capable of acheiving the sort of pressures needed in motorhome tyres (up to 140psi). You do need to run the engine while using it if you have it plugged into the cigarette lighter socket.

    I bought one of these from Maplin last year when it was £19.99. Works really well, though the first time it blew the fuse on the ciggie lighter socket.

    Its predecessor from Halfords had suddenly gone bang and become a rapid tyre deflater just as we were about to set off for France.
