Welcome kokomokid to irv2.
You didn't say which of the two type you have but here is a link for both generally 120* would be the temp if it goes higher the relief valve will operate.

I don't know about Suburban but the Atwood's are set at 140 degrees.
If you are careful you can lift the relief valve toggle and release some water so you can measure the temperature.

This is from the service manual.

"The thermostat and ECO are pre-set surface-mounted
discs. The thermostat is set at 140 F and is the same
thermostat used on the gas side of the electronic
ignition water heaters. The ECO is a backup
thermostat and will trip if the thermostat fails and the
water temperature exceeds 170 F."
