Look for a 10000W SCR on Amazon.com. They run about 20 bucks and can take the entire 23 amps in
an enclosure.I have one of these too, I have yet to use it. Setting up a simple 220v system
with a 5500W...

They get quite hot if you use them in variable mode. Not bad with full power. I've been
thinking of putting a cooling block on the back of mine.

While we are waiting on Humulus' pics, a related question. I wired my system exactly as he did,
30amp breaker in main panel to spa panel in the garage. I purchased a spa panel that has a
60amp gfci br...

If it were me, I'd put a piece of wood behind the hole and gently hammer it more flat so the

After you told me it would fit I pulled it real hard and got it past the first bend and it went

10-4, I'll use this to run from the breaker box to the spa panel, then find the appropriate

After a little searching I see the 10/3 wire NM-B is only rated for 90C, that means I need
something different for the Hot Rod if I go that route.

I'm warming to the idea of a Hot Rod . I see it is 16", I assume that is with a 14" Camco 5500
wavy element? I assume this would work in a keggle and certainly in my 20gal Bayou, but my
10gal kettle i...
