    I also use the black totes and they warm right up, I drilled a hole in to them and stick the probe outside of the tote on to the shady side of it so the sun doesnt kick it on too early.

    My setup is very similar to yours. Both of my shurflo pumps are installed inside my sap shack, with the temp probe installed outside on the north side of the building so it is not affected by direct sunlight. Temp controller set to come on at 32* and off at 30*.
