Slide Power Issue???

So we went camping over the weekend and the fridge which is located in my slide had power but the compressor would only run a few minutes then stop. Never run long enough to cool but has power. It is a 12 volt only Everchill fridge. Well after camping the weekend I go to run the slide in and itís extremely slow and sluggish as if the slide motor isnít getting the juice it needs. Battery voltage is over 12 plugged in and voltage at fridge is exactly the same as what the battery reads. I have not been able to crawl under to check slide motor voltage yet since it started raining. I guess my question is could this be a bad ground within the slide? The camper is a 2021 Clipper 262bhs. While it is under warranty I was trying to avoid some of the long wait to have it checked by dealer if itís something I can fix. Thanks

You need to measure the battery WITHOUT being plugged into shore power.
