two are for cooling fans.one is the main power, same idea as a disconnect switch.control pull in circuit with ground.and one is extra incase one fails

A solenoid is overkill for a fan.
Not to mention the voltage loss travelling so far from your solenoid to your fan on the 10 gauge wire (assuming the battery isnt right behind the solenoid center). At that length the wire is only capable of supporting roughly 20 amps of draw before voltage loss is experienced causing your fans to operate less then optimal yet your solenoid is good for probably 150+ amps (hence the overkill).
IE a 30/40 bosch relay is ualmost always fine mounted closer to your fan.
And your main power supply should definetly have more then a 10 gauge supply
Not tryin to be an asshole its a great truck[36]

the solenoids have less chance of failing than the relays and they were free.the supply wire from the battery is 8 gauge and about 4 feet long,the relays are for fuel pump starter ignition and gauge lights.thanks for the input gives me something to think about cheers
