The heater has an internal solenoid that controls the propane flow. It can be used with a timer or thermostat.
As mitiempo says, a master solenoid for all propane flow is required at the tank as per proper gas installation.

You need a solenoid at the tank.

Thanks for the offer via email.

I actually need to know if it comes with an internal solonoid type gas tap

I sent you a PM with my email so I can forward a legible copy of the schematic and the code for the Arduino controller.

I have a '78 vintage Remotron heater that I mounted in an Alaskan camper at that time and used very little. It has been sitting since '79 and is essentially new, old stock; original box and all. All parts including thermostat and instructions if anyone is interested as a replacement or for parts.

Don't tell your insurance company you are using one of those in a boat.

Here is a poor quality scan of the schematic of my controller. If you send me a PM with an email address I can send you a legible version and the source code I wrote for the Arduino controller.

Google "Arduino" to learn about the controller - a simple, cheap, open source microcontroller.
