Not sure which brand of water heater that you have. The video is for an Attwood water heater. My Jayco has a Suburban water heater.

Hozerdude, if you could describe the symptoms you're having with your Atwood heater, we may be able to help you in your troubleshooting. I've had a few issues with mine [10 gal. Atwood] that were resolved quickly. Are you sure it's the thermostat? What year is your trailer?

Agreed! The only sensors that really work for me are the fresh water and battery (and I'm glad those work).
