On an 50A circuit should you be able to turn all of three of your electric heaters on at the same time without tripping the main breaker?

Check the amp rating of the heater and do the math. Electric heaters pull A LOT of current, so I'm guessing you'd be near the 50amp max.

Yes, all electric heaters are required to have an emergency circuit breaker which shuts the unit down in the event of overheating.

You can have a total of 3600 watts. NEC requires you to use only 75% of circuit breaker, therefore on a 20 amp breaker you can use up to 15 amps.

Propane heaters have a better rating than electric heaters. This is due to the lower cost of ownership.
