Have a question...

i have an extra compressor in my garage at home, (as i use my large belt compressor for home use instead)

it is a 110volt 15 amp 1.5hp, 2.5 gallon

i was thinking about putting it in my jeep for OBA, but I wanted to hard wire it and not have to use an inverter, can i re-wire the compressor to make it DC some how?

it is fairly new and if i can seperate the tank it would be a great addition...

Thats how this country was pioneered-by dreamers

No, you can't rewire it, you can replace the AC motor with a DC motor, but you can't use it in a vehicle without an elaborate dual battery or supplemtal dc supply sys--forgetit, get a DC portable compressor-there's lots ofem
