Sizing of air lines

Hey
What size air lines are you all running from your mounted air compressors to you outlets
My compressor has 1/4" male threads
Was thinking of doing 3/8" rubber hose from hd.....and some barbed fittings
Any insight????

Also any wiring advise
I have blue sea fuse biz and my own switch already run to area where compressor will be mounted
So in assuming 10 or 12 gauge to compressor from battery and switch to relay

Larger will not hurt a thing.
I don't know crap about electrical ( anything that you can not see and can kill you is not to be trusted! )

10 ga wire should be more than adequate to power the compressor. Google wire gauge chart to check your specs.

Cheers.
IS IT RUBBER 3/8" HOSE AND BARBED CONNECTIONS?

Personally I would run air line like this.

http://thorbros.com/catalog/air-line-dot

They also sell any type of fitting you can think of.

Here is another good site to order from.

The size of the wire depends on how far away the comp. is from the battery and how many amps it pulls at full load. 10ga should be fine but if you are putting it under your bed or something, I would step it down to 6ga or maybe even 4ga.
