I need to create a Dummy load of 50 amps at 18.5 volts DC so I will need to dissipate 1000 watts, was thinking of using 10 x 100 watt 100 ohm resistors from EBAY will that work, there are others at 4 Ohm etc, what ohm should I use?

Calculate the resistance of halogen light bars as used in work lights and such.
As an alternative you can use heating elements as well.
Cheaper and more reliable than normal resistors in this power range.
