Re: Electrical propane shut off valve

The Trident control panels use a solid state relay to control the solenoid valve. The panel's relay is rated for 1 amp-12vdc and that is what the valve that they sell draws. Two valves gives an 100% overload. I am in agreement with several others-- you only need one valve. the valve (on the high pressure side) will pass all your stove and heater together can use. The regulator is rated for something like 100000 btu/hr and your heater is probably about 10000 but / hr. The stove with oven might be 50000 but /hr.
