Atwood water heater

Need help. We have an Atwood water heater model GE-9 Ext. we have replaced circuit board, pressure release valve, and thermostat. When water heats up starts spewing out the valve. Don't know what else to replace. Anyone have an idea or has this happened to you? We have a 2008 Jayco Eagle fw.
Tia, Chris

If your are on city water, what's the line pressure running to the RV?


Or, have you checked the pressure from the onboard pump?

I think you are on to the problem! Try it with a pressure regulator if it is to high. I have never heard this complaint though!

You never met the furnace in my parent's house in Cold Spring NY. They were renting* a cottage 75' from The Hudson River. The water tower was at the top of the hill.

The TPI valve had to be replaced every two years and garden hoses every time the spigot was left on.
