No chance they’re getting more smashed than they should?

Not sure what you mean. I’m running 120vac on a 15 amp breaker. I don’t know what the bed is pulling amperage wise. The SSRs are failing in a closed state but I’m still using the thermostat that came with the bed as a limit to how hot the bed can get.

I did a little research and the market is flooded with fake Fotek SSRs that are rated much lower than advertised and it’s hard to find a legitimate source other than Fotek. Shipping from Fotek is half again more the the price of the SSR. I bought a USA made SSR which was a bit more than the Fotek but less than the Fotek + shipping. I haven’t received it yet so no info as of yet.
