    Assuming that it is a correctly wired 4-prong outlet, for 30amp, you should be fine. But, to
    ensure is okay, take a volt-meter and check your outlet for correct wiring which is according
    to the NEMA o...

    Okay, so I'm back after a hiatus (had to get the company $$ pipeline filled).Anyway, brewed
    last weekend and got psyched about reviving this project since I do have all the parts. Hell,
    they've been s...

    The relay arrived today, so time to tinker.Sheesh, no wiring diagram for the relay. Damn,
    something else to figure out (cryptic drawing on side of relay is murky).

    Those "look" like 12 gage wires, but they could be 14's. You do have a couple options, but
    selection of one will limit they other. For instance, if you go the 120V option, that limits
    you to 2400W, bu...

    Breakers can be deceiving. A new breaker typically comes in a tripped (middle position). You
    need to flip the breaker all the way in the off position, first (it will click). Then, throw it
    on.

    Okay--- I can get some 12/3 awg and re-wire the power plug no problem.JRWell, if you can rewire
    from the panel to the plug-in (or hard wire) location, you have lotsa options. May as well run
    10 gage w...

    I checked, it's a 20amp breaker. The power cord to the heating element is wired right now with
    14/3. The 20 amp breaker is one thing, but that 14/3 is (theoretically) the weak point. That is
    14 gage w...

    Ahhh, I was in the thought pattern of toggling back/forth the switch on DP.Based on your input
    it would be: part #7266K43 which is a Spade-Terminal Relay DPDT, 12 DC Control Voltage via
    those sensors...

    All input within these threads is very valuable.P-JAgree 100%, thanks tophmck & P-J for
    feedback. Hell, I have a BSEE and run an electrical/photovoltaic contracting company, but
    scratch my head on som...
