Side thought, guess those could fail too and flood the earth, better just train myself to remember to tuen off the valve
I had this same thought several years ago but you would want a solenoid that doesn't require power to keep it energized one way or the other. I suppose it wouldn't be a problem if you had hookups but I don't want something draining battery power when I'm dry camping.
