Baseboard heater / wall thermostat hookup question

I have a Marley MD26 "double line break" thermostat with two black wires and two red wires. On the unit it says "Load Black" and "Line Red".
Power runs from a 20A dbl pole breaker into a junction box (both black and white wires are 120v). The wire then runs to another junction where the feeds to each heater (three of them) are pigtailed, blacks together, whites together.
How do I place this thermostat between the incoming power and the outgoing feeds to the heaters?

Does each red get one leg of the incoming 240 (ie red#1 to black incoming, red#2 to white incoming) and each black connect to on leg of the outgoing 240 (ie black#1 to black outgoing, black#2 to white outgoing)?

Thanks,

Sandy

That's correct! Line = power in. Load = power out.
