Posted in thread: Online Source for DIN components? And good terminals? on 03-13-2015 at 02:10 AM
Another vote for mouser and the Altech DIN components. You can run multiple wire sizes to a
terminal. The specs will indicate the min and max you can use.

You would probably be fine with a single 15 amp breaker for everything but the elements. I went

I wasn't really looking for a 50' cord but found a really good deal on SOW cords (I prefer

I'm debating on whether I should get one 50' cord or two 25' cords for my panel (and just use

feet of my...

I went with a small tool box. Much more room for wiring and I can store a few things inside

There isn't a white jumper from pin 5 to pin 3 in your diagram. That's just a gray box
outlining the pid.
