Atta boy, Snoz
You are correct.
There are many cheap timers, these will not handle the 1000W load.
They just blow open, never to work again.
If there are those that have the talent, get a cheap timer to drive a 20A-30A relay, have that relay power the BH.
I have neon test light, wired to terminal block under the hood.
One side of the terminal block goes to the BH, opposite side has the neon test light, and cord wires that lead to the outlet.
I can crack the hood and peer in to see the neon light, than I know the BH is getting voltage.
Terminal blocks allow replacement of the outlet side of the cord.
The common problem occurs at the male end, as it shakes in the wind, as you drive.
