Default Perfect 120V power cord

I had a pressure washer die on me two years ago (leaked at the high pressure port, then stripped out threads trying to fix) that I removed the motor and everything and stuck on the shelf knowing it would be good for something. Yesterday I was looking at it and it had 30 foot of power cable and a 1850 watt gfci on the end! Perfect as I am going to be using an 1800 watt 120v element in my first e-build. It also had a sweet on off switch that opened up both hot and neutral, this will really make my brewing much nicer.

pictures to come!

Sounds nice! I nope the gfci doesn't false-trip too often being so close to your operating wattage.

I can only imagine they would build it with a margin of error, but I will find out today when I test it!
