    Not sure of the frequency the guy is using in the videos but the remote looks the same. Anyone that has one has nothing but good things to say about it. So im trying to mimic the video.

    This is a motor/pump that a may be using. https://www.pumpcatalog.com/goulds/gb-booster-pump-series/7gbs1014r4/
    and yes it would be at full power the entire time that it is on.

    How much simpler would this be if I were to eliminate the 110v motor side of things? I could potentially do that.

    Not really any more simple. The external relays are only necessary if the internal ones can't handle the voltages and currents And that is probably the case with the information you have provided. Unfortunately most of the cheap remote receivers don't provide that spec. So just assume that you need the external relays, and choose them to meet you 12vDC and 110VAC needs.

    Could you recommend a relay for the 110 side?

    For the 1hp motor quoted and the fact that it will be on full load continually and the fact that the motor can draw 4 times or more full load current at startup, then a contactor would be more suitable as explained earlier.

    So you agree with Ken's last post that the relay he linked to would be a suitable solution?

    "DPDT contacts rated 30A (N.O.) 3A (N.C.) @ 277Vac. 1HP 120Vac:" Rated for 1HP

    10-4. I'll put together a little parts list with links and see what y'all think before I order.

    There is no mention of "motor rating" that I can see.
    Rated for 1hp not the same.

    I'm not really sure what to take from your post blue jets. Can you explain a little further?
