I just hooked this up to a dew heater strip and it works fine. You can control the heat and it has a power LED indicator. Connected to a 18 volt DC power supply. Less than $8.00 on Fleabay.

This works very well and gives you three circuits.   RGB LED dimmer

Thats pretty cool.  Do any of those have standard RC type jack outputs to plug your dew strips into?

Nope.  Just screw-down terminals.

Here is the controller mounted in a cheap pvc electrical box with the controls cut out of a blank cover. I did need to cut and resolder the switch wires to mount the switch. It is attached to the tray on my pier. It works well....used it last night.
