Man, this thing is putting up a fight for ya.

I dealt with that on my 16/6. Fix one thing, then something else would go. I am fighting a charging issue right now. keeps burning up regulators.

I don't think you are running it long enough between starts to re-charge the battery. I sometimes need to trickle charge mine, as I don't run them enough either. Do you have a multi-meter?

Got to borrow my uncles my dad took mine to work and it got stolen. I have been leaving on a float charger when it parked in the shed.

Grease the beads real well. Place a ratchet strap around the tire, remove the valve stem and use the air hose nozzle to shoot a lot of air in the tire, while rolling it back and forth.

Already done we are thinking the air compressor don't have enough psi

I have a 20 gallon compressor, it didn't have enough cfm's for the All-terrains I put on BMP, those had to go to a tire shop, and they had trouble too.

Like Larry said, It's not the psi, it's the cfm that you can get thru the valve stem.
Increasing the psi will increase the cfm, but so will removing the core and running a bigger hose with fewer connectors.
I remember Dad hose clamping onto a stem and using a direct plumbed hose with a ball valve on one front tire on (i think) the Ferguson 35.
Got it to seat and then let it sit there a while with air. Eventually, he quick removed the hose and put in the stem core.

I think they are all tubed now.
