brak blueseas makes a label for "LPG control" which is what "propane" is. I have it (in my case it controls Xintex LPG control unit with sensors and all that)

sailingdog Even if Blue Sea doesn't make a label, printing one up on a laser printer or using a hand-held label maker wouldn't be all that tough. The one reason a lot of people like to have the propane solenoid on a separate panel is that it is hard to mistakenly turn it on or off that way. It is also pretty clearly on or off and hard to mistake its LED for anything else.

If you really do want to put it on the main DC panel—at least do yourself the favor of putting in a different color LED for it. If the regular LEDs are GREEN, put a RED or AMBER or BLUE LED in for the Propane solenoid breaker.

Gary1 You might be able to find a label for 'stove'. Good luck on this one.

Propane solenoid control

I am looking to clean up the rat's nest otherwise known as my breaker panel. In looking to accommodate the Trident Gas Control Panel along with an expanded set of breakers to eliminate all the doubling up that I have, I notice that the gas control is simply a 1A breaker with an indicator light taking up a fair amount of space on its own panel. The new panels I will be installing have LED indicator lamps. I cannot see any reason to not simply use a 1A breaker, properly marked, in the panel. Am I missing something here? I notice that Blue Sea does not print a "Propane" label for use on their panels.
