hot water heater resetting

My neighbor has a small electric hot water heater with one element in her mobile home. A couple of weeks ago, it stopped heating. She checked the heater and pushed the reset button and it worked fine for 10 days. Then the heater went out again. Pushing reset seems to work. Any ideas of what might be wrong, how to find out for sure, and how to fix it?

Sounds like the thermostat needs to be replaced. Having to push the reset button indicates that the thermostat is the problem.
