Weird issue with ARB dual commpressor

Installed the compressor tonight, everything went well. But I noticed it cycles like this when I am not inflating, or otherwise drawing air out of the unit.

Is this normal?

Power is right off the battery and switch runs to a CB wire behind the dash.

Thanks!!!

Try contacting ARB. Or a dealer of ARB products.

Mine does that because there is an air leak (soap tested & found). Any way you have a leak?

Weird, never had that happen with my arb. Check all the connections as someone else suggested.

Definitely a leak. Cycle it up and spray some soapy water on the bulkhead fittings.

Bob - I am not running a tank or anything, this is right off the compressor into the hose.

Still got a leak Scott. Check the bulkhead connector at the compressor tank. And anything connected to it. The pressure switch can leak, too. Did you use a thread sealer when you installed the fittings?

The compressor has a small tank. It is what all the fittings thread into. The single compressor has a tank about the size of a hotdog bun.

Agreed, still connections that could be leaking air. With the small tank and the hose (small volume) it would cycle quickly between the lower and upper set point of the pressure switch.
