Oh Yeah, rewiring a Rented, cement house, is Way cheaper than buying a $139 AC Sequencer.

Why don't you try the approach I mentioned in post #2

20 amp breaker, 230 volt mains. Try something like a 10 to 33 ohm 50 or 100 watt resistor. Like these. No heatsink needed.


You then have a relay to short the resistor out after a few tenths of milliseconds. That can be one simple 555 timer type circuit and one tiny tiny transformer to power it. Put it all in a box in series with the mains feed to the amps.
