Help with hot water heater!

Well I started up my water heater for the first time today and it works mabe to good. How long does it take for it to shut down? Mine ran for 45 min and was still running even thought the water was hot at the tap. I had setting as low as it could go. I need a education on running it we leave on Friday and would like to use it. May be I am doing somthing wrong or does something need cleaning or just let it run. Don't want to burn down trailer.

Also what year and model heater? The older ones worked different then the new all electronics ones.

Where you running it on gas or electric? After 45 minutes both would be hot and need to shut down.

Sounds like something is not working right but need some more info to better help
