I went to springs a few years ago when a air bag broke about 100 miles from home base. Long slow ride!.
Am now thinking about taking out the air compressor trying to make room for a second battery.
Has anyone done this? If so any hints. I'm concern about the electrical site of the removal don't want to cause any problems!!

Usual place for a second battery on the Special Vehicles versions is in the right hand side of the boot. Space where the EAS box lives is a bit too small, and also has things like the cruise control actuator attached to it, for a decent battery.

I have also fitted a second battery, in the loadspace opposite where the factory subwoofer sits. I use a T-Max split charge system to control it. Fitted it a good 6 years ago now, and it works well.

...possibly rig the compressor up to pump the tyres up when needed !
Not at all a good idea. EAS air compressor are designed for short run periods with very low output. You will burn out the compressor before you get one tyre done.

Get a real compressor designed for tyres with high output.
