has anyone swapped off the 110v compressor motor and plumbed in their 12v? Seems to me they would have everything needed. The pressure switch is just open closed right?

The pop off and safety would all work right? I mean air is air right?

If so, I think a visit to the pawn shop is in order...

hmmm this (http://www.harborfreight.com/manuals/47000-47999/47407.pdf)only pulls 2.5 amps , and my power converter wired into the aux battery puts out 7... (700w divided by 110v)...

agreed..system is fully fused..

seriously though, nothing in a compressors controls are voltage based right? pop off and pressure switch are pressure based, simple current switches right?
