I'm not sure if this should go in a new thread or not, so please tell me and I'll move it if you think it should be.
Thanks for the information on the steel sizes and gas plumbing; I'm getting really close to having a finished rig. I've got my focus on the control panel now. After hours of reading threads and looking at wiring diagrams on HBT, I can't seem to find one specifically geared at propane rigs that utilize a RIMS tube like yours and mine. They all seem to be electric rigs utilizing HERMS. I'm trying to stick to my original plan and your control panel seems to fit the bill with a PID and on/off switches for the panel, pump, and RIMS element. By the way, what does the fourth switch do? I'm hoping you might be willing to share your wiring diagram, part selection, and if I'm lucky a few pictures of the inside of your panel. I'm hoping that is easily accessible or you can take a few pics if it's not to much trouble. Maybe I'll get lucky with some help from you and also maybe P-J will be reading and chime in and sketch up one of his professional diagrams. He's pretty awesome at that on here. Here are the parts I plan on purchasing and some I don't know what to buy, yet. By the way, I've already built my RIMS tube with a 120V 1500W low density element like the RIMS for Dummies thread. Thanks for any help you or anyone else may offer.
