Hot propane relay

The propane relay is activated to the open position whenever the coach relay is on. My relay is very hot, too hot to touch. This seems unusual and is likely a drain on the batteries. My couch batteries die in about 72 hours if the coach is unplugged and the power relay is on. I installed a switch to turn it off when the unit is parked, and turn it on when using the fridge or hot water heater. Does anyone know if this is normal ? I hate to replace the relay only to find that this is a normal condition.

Jim this is normal for the relay to be very hot, I heard its around 130 degrees to turn this off you can use the master on/off switch or you can pull the 5 amp fuse by the battery. I have a 378XL and the fuse is located under the steps. If you pull the fuse it will turn off the propane detector and the hot switch. In order to use propane you will need to replace the fuse. Hope this helps....
