Yeah definitely...

Trefive is only running one solenoid on his 1-5 24 volts and I'm running one per pump on my 2-4 24 volts.

it will work just fine,  the reason for multiple noids is safety  if one sticks on you the 2nd will still break the circuit.
thank everyone for your help

but im not likely to have one stick if im using low volts?
i have a quick disconnect also

low voltage is 1 of a few causes to make a solenoid stick

your solonoids are more likely to stick open if you are low on charge. Not if you run only 2 batteries. If you have 2 batteries you would normally have 24V, but if your batteries are low on charge you will only see 20V or so, depending.
