Re: High Priced "Marine" Thermostats

It is hard to believe the $100 price tag on this thermostat. Seems like the life expectancy is 2 seasons and the price keeps going up. I have found possibly two solutions to further research as a way around paying big bucks for what should be a $10 item. One is a complete replacement of the thermostat and housing. See Indigo Electronics 800-428-8569, web: Cost $150 but the replacement thermostat is a NAPA part. The second is a thermostat made by Mallory Marine - looking a lot like the 5411 thermostat but selling for around $25. Part number 9-43024. Am trying to obtain the dimensions or find a dealer with the Mallory part in stock to compare. If anyone gets there first, let me know.
