Compressor died finally

Ok so this autozone slime compressor died...

I was sure it would last because it's the longest lasting one i've had so far! This one lasted about a month now! I said something while I was camping and I think that was the end of it's life... Jinxed myself haha..

I'm taking the comp back tomorrow...

What do you think I should get...

I think I'm looking at the Viair 280... I think that's the one...

I just need something with 100% duty cycle and don't want to spend more than $170 on a compressor...

What do you guys recommend given those parameters? lol

I think I'm gonna go with the Viair 380C since it's 100% at 100 psi and 50% at 200 psi... Seems like it's the bread winner!

Well I bought it on the 18th of April... And it lasted til Sunday night... You do the math...

I think I need to run a relay in my system... I think that's where I'm going wrong.. Am I right?
