Oddly that one is in my shopping cart right now because the summer trail season has started here in the Northeast. Curious what others think about it.

Those screw on deflators do work but they are surprisingly slow compared to other methods.
I just use this..... $8 Amazon. View attachment 15994
I kept reading and finding the same thing. They work...but take awhile. What exactly is that a picture of? Looks like it's a compressor attachment...

Yes, just a simple compressor attachment.
Even dealing with 1 tire at a time, i deflate faster then my group using those screw-ons.
Not that it's a race, just surprising.

I just bought the 400P. It's overkill, but usable for a future motor home. And it has a really nice carrying bag. [emoji41] - Just arrived today. Going to play with it this weekend.

Also, I want to see if I can couple it with my Noco battery to make it truly portable and not use my Jeep battery.

My unit will also deflate the tire rather rapidly and I do not need to unscrew the valve core. It is the same unit I use with my heavy duty compressor and looks similar to the picture above works for me and it is really fast.

I have the same MV-50 pictured above. Inflates at an ok speed for it's cost but guage on it is completely off so need to contantly disconnect then check with a simple gauge. Hoping to get something better at some point but generally not in a huge rush to go anywhere when inflating so has been put off for other stuff

Wow mine the pressure gauge is spot on I would be upset if it was off that is the real reason for having it??
Correction I do not use or rely on the compressor air gauge as I changed the air hose (longer) and bought a separate unit on the right to inflate and deflate the tires and that gauge is very accurate.

I have Currie's version, which is basically same as the ARB one. Gauge is accurate too.
