Had that happen, it over heated to the point the pressure relief valve popped.
Turns out there are two thermostats that either break or the plastic holding them down gets too brittle to hold them in place. The latter happened to me. Easy fix though, you can buy a kit that has both T-stats and new hold down material. Comes on a card from your local RV center. Took me all of 15 minutes to replace them. No further troubles.
