Pressurizing intake

hi guys i was pulling my fifth wheel over the weekend and could barely hit 10 psi something has to change about that or mpg is gonna suck on my upcoming 200 mile trip, i checked exhaust system but dont see any signs of leaks, now i am trying to pressurize the intake, what i've done is hook air compressor to the spot where my boost gauge taps in, and capped the intake any other places i have to stop cause wouldnt the air just flow through open valves in the engine? any help would be appreciated
