monsoon rs400..........

So Im going on vacation in a week. Going to be gone for 9 days. And well I'm glad it happened now and not a week from now but my monsoons timer &$#% the bed like they always do. Now it only works in manually turning it on and randomly turn on and dump a gallon of water onto your broms modes.

I won't have enough money to buy a new one for about a month. Anyone got any ideas how I can jerry rig it to come on twice a day for a couple of seconds?

Just a shot in the dark- what about a switch timer? Like you'd use for a reptile lamp. You plug them into the wall, then plug the machine into it. The switch only provides power for the times you specify. I don't know what it'll do to your Monsoon's motor, but you could test it before you go. I picked up a timer for my fogger for about $7 at Canadian Tire.

Mistking makes a digital timer that you can set for second intervals. Cheaper then buying a new Monsoon.
