The customer feedback for the Campbell Hausfeld RP3200 has largely been very positive. However, a number of quite serious criticisms have also been leveled at the product. We will now discuss some of the complaints that the customers have made so that our readers can be as informed as possible about this product before purchasing it.
Many reviewers have found that it is not easy to get the hose connector out of tire valve once the tire has got inflated. In order to disconnect it from the tire valve, some force is required. One reviewer said that because of this problem he had lost at least 5 PSI. Although a number of users reported that they never had any difficulty unhooking the tire valve, the number of instances of customers experiencing this problem is quite alarming. There are few solutions written by other users that you can try. Other negative reviews have been made in relation to the vibration level of the product. Some of the customers have argued that the vibrations cause the unit moves on its own while in use. You are required to hold it down while it is doing its job. However this is a common problem with portable tire inflators. Many people do not see this as a problem. Finally, few negative reviews have been written for the fact that this product is quite noisy. But keep in mind that the Campbell Hausfeld RP3200 is an emergency tire inflator. What it means is you should not use it for indoor use. Just remember that the air machines at service stations are also noisy. Despite the criticisms that have been leveled at the Campbell Hausfeld RP3200, most of the customers have been satisfied with their purchase for reasons that we will now present. Firstly, many reviewers have found that this product performs as expected. Considering it is just a 12V DC tire inflator, you should not expect too much from this product. However, as an affordable emergency device, it works well for that purpose. A user reported that it took about 45 seconds to pump up one of his sedan tires from 25 to 35 PSI. To inflate a snow blow tire from 8 to 20 PSI, a user said that it took less than a minute to get the job completed. Positive comments have also been expressed by the reviewers in reference to the power cord. The cord is long enough to reach their car tires. The air hose is also sufficient. It is nice to know that this model comes with a compartment to store the power cord and air hose. Clearly, although the inflator has received a number of complaints, most of the customer feedback has been very positive. We would recommend the Campbell Hausfeld RP3200 to any of our readers that are looking for a cheap, portable tire inflator.
