Default Hooking up "Shore Air"?

The on-board "keep full" air compressor in my generator compartment (coach #426) cycles on every couple of hours... I suppose there's a (or a multitude of) small compressed air leaks about the coach. No biggie... some day when the weather improves (and it stops snowing, raining, and the wind stops blowing gail force)... I'll go around with a bottle of soapy water... identify the air leaks and lessen their severity if it's cost effective... but until if/when I get that round-tuit... I have a compressed air supply right next to where I house my coach... plumbed from the industrial compressor that feeds the operations at my shop & warehouse. I'm wondering if there's a recommended tie-in spot that I could feed my coach shore air (and give the on-board compressor a break)?

Mark,
On my coach there is a "shop air" hookup in the right rear compartment. Mine is a brass quick disconnect that is just inside at the rear of the compartment.
Cycling once every two hours is not too bad by Newell standards. On my coach when I got it it would cycle every ten minutes. After chasing air leaks mine now cycles once every 12 hours.

Good luck......................
