Thanks for the info! I installed a new solenoid yesterday afternoon and the timer finally ran through a complete cycle without locking up. I have no clue how long it had been since the last time it ran, but it was long enough that I may have to replace some plants. Hopefully the sage will come back though.
The pull-in current makes sense as to what was causing the PTC to trip every time station 2 tried to start up. I am going to look into your suggestion for the MOV. I don’t think the problem I was having was related to power surges, but at least it is something to add an additional layer of protection.
Thanks again…another cycle ran this morning and no issues 😀
