Train horns/air bags..

So I am thinking of putting my rear bags back on my truck... However this time I would really like to get a compressor and air tank so that I can control them on the fly without having to stop at the gas station to fill them up. So of course since I am thinking of doing this, I also decided now would be the perfect time to get some train horns... I am looking at the Hornblasters kits (Shocker) with the viair compressor and tank... My question is, does anybody use the compressor and tank for both train horns and airbags??? Seems like a no brainer to me... What do you all think?? Thanks

It will work fine. You will need to use an air gauge to tell how much air is in your bags have them trigger on one solenoid so they both go up the same and down the same. Also you will want to t off to another solenoid for the airhorns. Will work fine. The bigger the tank the more playtime / on demand air you will have. My buddies also have me T off one more time to add a chuck for air tools and filling tires and such. just depends on the compressor and tank combo.

it would work fine, but I would honestly upgrade the compressor( don't mount it upside down )....keep everything out of the elements, and run a bigger tank.....so no I guess you could say it wouldn't work very well LOL. what I would do is run possibly 1 compressor( hornblasters kit ) for your horns, and run an 8 gallon tank and 2 viair 450C compressors for your air suspension. hope this helps.

Ok guys...So I have been installing the train horns and airbag setup for about a week now (little time here and there) And I am ALMOST done... But, I got the AirLift dual needle dual paddle from Hornblasters, but there are no instructions for this... Does anybody know if I need to hook up a power source to this gauge?? If so, where and how?? Anybody else use this setup??? Thanks guys...

Also, what kind of a button/switch is everyone using for their train horns?? It comes with an on/off switch but it seems like you would want a push button rather than something that is either on or off???
