Its very hard to get a swamp cooler to work off a tstat . Most people just turn it on and off when needed

white rogers

white rogers makes a control panel and thermostat combo for evaporative coolers. Go to www.white-rogers.com scroll down to a link in the middle the page that says products/tech info, next page click on thermostats, next page click on evaporative cooling controls, next page you'll see some links for installation instructions and wiring diagrams. As for the power supply, look for a nameplate on the unit that indicates voltage and amperage requirements. Post back and some of the other gentleman here can help you with c/b and conductor sizing. For sure you will need a disconnect at the unit.
