If you can't find a thermostat right away, just disconnect the element that is staying on all the time. This will at least give you normal temperature hot water, but just not as fast a recycle time a

Check the motor wiring. It may be hard to understand, so if you look at the voltage specification and it shows 220/120 or 220/408, the 220 in the first one is "high" and "low" in the second one. Now

Generally 12V. I don't think I've ever seen a 6V unit. If you have any doubt you can always charge the battery with a 6V charger and see if there is any charge current. If not, go to 12V. Peace, Pat
