I agree on the moisture issue. Good quality air hose fittings will work as long as you put the fittings on in the proper order. Male directly on the back of your unit and female on the hoses. Either leave the compressed air regulator connected from the outlet to the rear of the machine or cap the inlet at end of use. This will ensure no contamination and should eliminate any moisture issues. After doing a lot of reading, this was the setup I put on my 205SI and works well. Great machine

To bad Everlast does not sell the QDC fittings. Maybe something for the future. Would be an excellent option other than a screwed in fitting.
