    I’m sure others have done this. I’d like to be able to start my gen with the pressure tank switch. It needs to pull choke, I’ll use a car door solenoid to pull it, switch gen on, crank starter and switch power on to the cabin and well, finally switch power off and stop gen. I have have looked at programming a arduino, cheap but I don’t think it would stand up to the moisture of being left in the well shed all winter. I have looked into a morning star relay driver, I’d need 2 of them, they only have 4 input/output and also a atkin auto gen start unit, any suggestions?
