What type controller are you going to use?
You are correct about the available power at camp grounds. I plan on doing a 30 gal version using 110v element once I've completed this project.
On the controller, I'm using a PID (proportional-integral-derivative) controller with an SSR. The one I purchased was from Auberins, model number: SYL-2352
I'll post more and pics on this in the near future.
