Ahoy,
If you can find a Radio Shack, or equivalent, they sell project notebooks that will describe step by step how to build your own RC circuit to trip a relay. The projects come complete with Radio Shack parts lists to get everything you need. Those notebooks also have a number of other DIY projects to keep yourself occupied on the rare day your boat is not consuming all your free time in maintenance tasks.

Later,
NJ

Re: Looking For A 12v Button That Will Close The Circuit For X Seconds

Do not use the air "suction cup" delay type on a boat. Although they are attractive for simplicity and not needing any electronics, the three we had on our boat were a maintenance problem. Had to disassemble and cleaned thoroughly on a yearly basis.

Or, just use the 5A relay to control the 30A relay.

For me about $13 including shipping.
he lists 15amp 12vdc
so how much amps does a toilet motor draw?
Is adjustable you tell him the range you want.

SMALL TIMER SWITCH 10A Delay Off 12V TIME RELAY FROM 1 TO 40 90 145 430 660 SEC | eBay

I have noticed the same issue, like to see it run longer. People dont want to hold it down.
