Re: amps?

As many amps as a battery will allow. I'd guess 100amps would be in the lower ranges of a battery and factory starter wiring.

Remote soleniods normally dont require much relay as the main cable may draw several hundred amps but the solinoid draws just enough to throw the gear across , I have used 50 amp relays for over kill but one day I might measure stuff , whats the rate on your relay ? ( do you know how to measure ithe solinoid current ?)
