Angry 2018 Southwind, drivers side slide will not work

I have a 2018 Fleetwood Southwind. I have had repeated issues with the drivers slide not working right. Well this week, it would close about 6 inches. Once it was trying to go upthe lip it stops. Had to manually crank it in. I got to next campground and it opened fine. After 10 days. It came in about 2/3rds and stopped. Had to manually crank it in. Got to next destination and now it will not work at all. Manually cranked it out. Anybody have this issue and have any ideas what to look at. Batteries look good. I topped off water level in batteries.

Most likely the motor has a weak spot, and was defective upon installation. Next time, when it stops, give it a crank or two and hit the switch. If it works again, it's the motor.

Tryed that, nothing. Slide control board has power to it. Going to meter the motors to see if any power is going to the motor. Will look at it this weekend and post the results. Thank you for the reply
