I have 2 240 volt electric baseboard heaters and 1 double pole thermostat. The diagrams are blurred and not very readable, and I don't know how to wire them up. Do I need 3 wire or will 2 wire do? I don't see a white return wire in the heaters or in the thermostat. I don't know where to begin. Please help???

No neutral required. Simply run a 12/2 from your power source to the thermostat, connected to the line terminals,
a 12/2 ftom the thermostat's load terminals to one of the heaters, and another 12/2 from one heater to the next, and connect the heater wires to 12/2.
