They depend on your particular water heater. The thermostat/high limit is one unit.

NOTE: The elec. spades are different sizes and on different sides. The one I got from Camping Connection was the large spade (I had to cut them down) and on the opposite side. I had a heck of a time getting it to fit. The ones I ordered are the correct ones
Mine is a Suburban SW6DE and the pn is Suburban Heater T Stat Switch Assembly 232317

Purchased two from Supply Parts for $42 including shipping.

If I were going to turn up the heat with a new t-stat,
I'd probably just change the 120v AC one to 140 deg and leave
the LP as is.
WE usually camp with electric hookups so the rare times
we are off the grid we could live with 120 deg water via the LP burner.
