Dear forum,
Recently I purchased a small air compressor after had a bad experience with a flat tire where I had to drag my bike by foot for more than 3 Km.....
Anyway, when plugging the compressor in idle mode to the RT socket, it works fine, but when connecting the hose to the tire valve and actually start to inflate it - the electronic fuse trips as it is too much current /overload.
Connecting the compressor to a car battery works superb and inflates the tire very quickly.
But I wouldnt think of carying a car battery for that....would I?
Anyone had experience this problem with RT? Or may have a suggestion?
Thanks in advance.
Gabi.

Canbus won't let you draw too much current..

A separate connector, Wired directly to the battery, Fused of course, Will allow you to do what you want....

You can charge the battery thru that port as well.....

Good Luck

John

What year is your RT? The early 1200 RT's were very limited on the amount of power at the accessory ports. They would not even carry the load of heated gear. Somewhere there is a kit available to upgrade them to the new style.

My RT is 2010 so I dont think this is the case. Anyway John's advise is probably what I'll do - a separate fused to bypass the RT electronics.
Thanks very much guys.
