Why Choose the Thor's Lightning Portable TotalControl 12v True Dual Air Compressor 10.6 CFM?

The Thor's Lightning Bolt TotalControl is the ultimate 12v portable air source with cutting edge technology that allows the user to set a target pressure at which the compressor will shut off. Simply select a target pressure using the built-in digital screen, and then relax while the compressor goes to work- automatically stopping when the tire is at the target pressure! The TotalControl automatically detects the number of tires it's attached to and will work on ANY number of tires- 1, 2, 3, 4, or even more. There's nothing like it.

This dual air compressor has a flow rate of 10.6 Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM), which makes it one of the fastest 12 portable air compressors on the market. What sets the Thor's Lightning Bolt series of air compressors apart from the competition is simple: flexibility. The Thor's Lightning Bolt TotalControl is truly Lightning Fast- it can add 20 lbs. of pressure to all four tires in just under 4 minutes using the Thor's Lightning Rapid Multi-Tire Air System (sold separately). The compressor comes with battery clamps to be attached to the positive and negative battery terminals, making it portable. With the purchase of the Quick Disconnect Wiring Harness, you can easily hardwire the Thor's Lightning Bolt TotalControl into your vehicle! The Thor's Lightning Bolt includes a 22' air hose to connect to each vehicle tire individually utilizing a lock-on tire chuck. The hose comes standard with an analog gauge to check tire pressure.

The Thor's Lightning Bolt TotalControl also includes a heavy-duty Nylon zippered Thor's Lightning carrying bag for maximum portability. The Thor's Lightning Bolt TotalControl is directly compatible with the Refuge MOLLE Air Compressor Mount.

INSTRUCTIONS

Thor's Lightning Rapid 4-Tire Air System (MID001/FUL001/RV001) Instructions:

Deflation:

  • Step 1: Un-pack hoses. There are two long hose sections, one for each side of the vehicle. There is a manifold equipped with two quick-disconnect couplers for the two long hose sections. Orient the hoses so the manifold is accessible for your air source.
  • Step 2: Connect the hose to the manifold via the quick-disconnect couplers (if needed). Make sure the air-valve (black handle) is parallel to the ground (this closes the valve).
  • Step 3: Connect long hose sections to the vehicle tire valve-stems using the quick disconnect tire chucks. Make sure there’s no kinks in the hose line. 
  • Step 4: After connecting the long hose sections to all tires that need to be deflated, open the air-valve by turning the black handle to perpendicular to the ground. Close the valve and check the digital air pressure gauge to see what air pressure the tires are currently at. Open and close the valve as needed until the desired air pressure is reached. 
  • Step 5: Leave Air System connected to all 4 tires for approximately 10-15 seconds with the valve in the closed position- this allows for all 4 tires to equalize their pressure. 

Inflation:

  • Step 1: Un-pack hoses. There are two long hose sections, one for each side of the vehicle. There is a manifold equipped with two quick-disconnect couplers for the two long hose sections. Orient the hoses so the manifold is accessible for your air source.
  • Step 2: Connect the hose to the manifold via the quick-disconnect couplers (if needed). Make sure the air-valve (black handle) is parallel to the ground (this closes the valve).
  • Step 3: Connect long hose sections to the vehicle tire valve-stems using the quick disconnect tire chucks. Make sure there’s no kinks in the hose line. 
  • Step 4: Connect coupler on manifold to air source. Note: if you are using a SmittyBuilt/Maxi-Trac/Lightning Bolt or Viair compressor, you will need the optional Thor’s Lightning Air System coupler. Once coupler is connected to air source, open the air-valve by turning the black handle to perpendicular to the ground. Failure to open the air-valve may cause the air source to fail due to back pressure. 
  • Step 5: Turn on the air source. Turn off the air source and check the digital air pressure gauge to see what air pressure the tires are currently at. Turn on and off the air source as needed until the desired air pressure is reached. 
  • Step 6: Leave Air System connected to all 4 tires for approximately 10-15 seconds with the valve in the closed position- this allows for all 4 tires to equalize their pressure.

NOTE: If utilizing a compressed CO2 air source (Power Tank), it is recommended not to exceed 200 p.s.i. in pressure on the regulator to prevent leakage unless a 250 p.s.i. High Pressure gauge upgrade was purchased. 

Digital Gauge:

If the digital gauge appears to be reading high or low, recalibrate the gauge by removing and re-installing the AAA batteries inside of the gauge. If that doesn’t work, the gauge can be recalibrated using the following procedure:

1. When the pressure gauge is in the state of no air pressure, remove the battery and then re-install the battery.

2. Press and hold both of the two buttons (ON and UNITS) at the same time for about 5 seconds until the display shows "-80".

3. When -80 appears, inflate the pressure gauge to 80psi: do not add air pressure slowly, it needs to be added to 80PSI quickly.

4. If the display show "pass", the pressure gauge is recalibrated successfully. 

5. Then remove and re-install batteries in pressure gauge, which will be ready for use. 

Thor's Lightning Quick Disconnect Kit (QDK001) Instructions:

Step 1: Disconnect positive battery terminal from vehicle battery. 

Step 2: Cut alligator clips off of Thor’s Lightning Bolt True Dual Compressor wires (take note of which wire is positive and negative with use of tape). 

Step 3: Feed red (positive) wire and black (negative) wire from Hardwiring Kit to vehicle battery or attachment to body (rear cargo area floor, battery terminals, etc.). DO NOT ATTACH WIRES TO BATTERY. 

Step 4: Strip insulation of red (positive) wire approximately 1/2” using wire strippers. Strip positive wire of compressor (marked with tape) approximately 1/2”.          

Step 5: Twist uncovered wire into a strand on both red (positive) wire and the air compressor wire. Place black heat shrink on both wires near end. Crimp on pole-connector terminal to both ends of wire. Use heat shrink as necessary to ensure protection from the elements. 

Step 6: Connect power pole wire connectors using “+” (positive) side to pole-connector terminals on both the compressor and the wiring kit positive wires. Repeat steps 4-6 for negative wires from wiring kit and compressor. 

Step 7: Cut red (positive) wire in engine bay near fuse box with wire cutters. Strip approximately 1/2” of insulation from both ends of red (positive) wire using wire strippers. Twist exposed wire into a strand. Unscrew plastic end caps of provided 100 Amp Fuse Receptacle Place and slide them over ends of wire onto insulation. Place wire in provided 100 Amp Fuse Receptacle and screw down terminals tightly onto exposed wire. Screw plastic end caps back onto fuse block. Use heat shrink if necessary before placing wire into fuse holder.       

Step 8: Strip approximately 1/2” from end of red (positive) wire near battery terminal. Place black heat shrink over end of wire. Twist exposed wire into strand. Place wire into provided silver wire terminal. Crimp wire into terminal firmly using wire crimpers. Place heat shrink over terminal connection and shrink it into place to protect against the elements. Repeat for black (negative) wire. 

Step 9: Determine where to best place fuse holder in engine bay (side of fusebox) and screw fuse holder into place with small screws. 

Step 10: Carefully place terminal onto positive battery terminal and bolt it onto terminal.

Step 11: Turn vehicle on and test the Thor’s Lightning Bolt True Dual Compressor by using power switch on top of compressor. 

Step 12: Show all your friends how fast you can air up!
