92 Pace Arrow P30

Live in Mesa AZ. Real HOT weather now. Have new batteries but can't get the starter to turn over properly. Feels and sounds like a weak battery start attempt. Seems to happen after driving in HOT temperatures. Electrical connections are all solid and tight. Had the starter and solenoid replaced three years ago. (The RV is in storage most of the time.) Infrequently, the engine starts immediately on the first attempt.
Any suggestions, please.

Check for a bad ground cable between the frame and the engine. You can try and use your jumper cables and go from the frame to the engine. I chased a problem like this on my 1990 chevy pick up. It would turn over like it had an almost dead battery. after hooking a jumper cable from the engine block and touching the frame it cranked over like crazy. also clean the battery terminals even tough you think they may be OK clean them anyway. Let us know what happens.
