    Wiring two actuators together?

    Can anyone tell me if I wire two actuators together, to make them turn at the same time, can the Easy Touch 4P control panel handle that without tripping or going to a fault of some kind?
    I'm trying to use this panel with my existing 2 new actuators, without having to upgrade to the more expensive unit that also includes two more actuators that I won't need or use.
    I only need to move these two 180 degree actuators to switch from pool to spa.

    The output of the EasyTouch should handle two actuators in parallel just fine.

    Hi Bama
    thanks for your input. I am having the same issue connecting two actuators together in parallel on an easytouch 8. Will find out how it holds up...
