Will it hurt a TRIAC outlet if switched to the off position without anything plugged in. Meaning I removed a device from the outlet while it was in the on position and now like to shut that outlet off. From what I understand the TRIAC outlets wont shut off unless they have more then .5 amps being drawn. Don't want to damage the TRIAC circuit is it okay to leave it in the off position from the dashboard or should I plug something back in so it goes to the off state?

Shouldn't hurt a thing. I've had empty triac sockets shut off on my EB8 before for months at a time without issues.
