Suburbans have a hi-limit/ECO (Emergency Cut Off) thermostat and an operating thermostat...that come together as an assembly, and are mounted up against the tank wall.
If your heater also has an electric heating element, it has a separate thermostat assembly for that to.
Suburbans also have a flame sensor, that detects the flame or if will shut off the heating source via the control module board.
We keep a troubleshooting/service file for these in our library here on FRF.
