Ive tried to push them and they seem solid, as in they won't move at all. Is there a way to test them or verify power to them ?

On my suburban I can "hear" the "sizzle" when heating using electric.

As a test only, remove the rubber plugs and install a jumper across the terminals or just tape the terminals together AFTER YOU DISCONNECT THE SHORELINE. THIS WILL DETERMINE IF THE LIMIT IS BURNT OUT.

If I put a jumper in there what should it do? Make hot water or a noise or what exactly do I check for.

IF the limit is burned out, it will start heating the water when you plug in the shoreline. It is just a check and should not be used as a fix.

OK. Soon as I'm off work I'll put a jumper in then plug it in and see what happens. I'll report back as soon as I do it

Pulled it apart. Didn't put a jumper in because the small copper wire that runs from pin to pin in the red wire side was broken is this a hardware store part or camper store thing ?

Camper store item. While you're in there, you might want to check the other one. I'd replace both with 140 ones to get the water hotter and therefore use less.
