Thanks for all the responses and advice.

@WhyMe I’m so sorry, I thought I had clarified in my post that both the DC and TS would be running on 240v, but apparently not.

@HokieKen, @Ruscal That would be great if i don’t have to worry about timing the start up times. I guess the only way to tell would be to test and see.

@misbeshavings I like this idea, and imagine it would be better/safer than long dropcords.

@CaptainKlutz I like the idea of the duplex receptacle, but it is unclear if the 20A rating on the receptacle is signifying the output or input. I could be wrong, but as the circuit is 30A, I would be hesitant to put anything rated less than 30A in the line.
