Good job - Give the RIMS a good shake once primed with the pump running to get any bubbles out of the probe recess.

Brewing is a slippery slope but you wont look back!!!
Cheers,

There's a good chance that you'll learn more from mistakes than you will from research. I wouldn't worry too much about how the first few batches turn out. As long as you're making reasonable extract beer you'll be making good all grain beer in no time.
I have nothing interesting to add here.

I was almost going to pass on the opportunity, but sleeping on it, I thought I could easily (as suggested) on sell it if I find I don't like it.

Ran 20lts through it last night as a test run, see if I could get water from one end to the other (thanks Simon for the lesson). Also tried the heating elements, again it worked but will now need to clean the element... thought I got all the air out... nope. Will run water and PWB through it and get a feel for the machine before brew day comes along.,

Still need to make a few purchases be that is mainly and extra extension cord, paddle and a no chill container. Also anything else I have forgotten.

Get yourself a waterproof extension plug cover.  Save your life and your brew hardware.  Just do it.
