Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

If you are not towing or driving aggressive which could indicate the need for a larger cooler. Then its more likely to just be a faulty temp sensor. If you have a diagnostic tool we could monitor the temp to see if it spiking up and down or if it is in fact gradually getting to high from a possible slippage concern.
