Slow laboring slides

Iíve searched the forum but canít seem to find a solution to my Eagles issue. We have an Eagle fifth wheel that we took across country this summer. When hooked to 50 A service everything seemed to work fine. More recently Iíve noticed that when hooked to 50A the two big slides are very slow to extend and retract. One is the schwintek, the other is not (canít remember the names but itís the two bars under the slide with teeth). I noticed this weekend when I got it home that when plugged into my house using a pigtail and an extension cord from my garage the slides work much faster. Does anyone have an idea as to why this might be? Shouldnít the 50A give the motors more power than my garage extension cord? Is there a fuse that the 50A uses that may have blown, but the other cord doesnít use? Sorry for the long post.

How well do the slides operate on the batteries?

If your control panel says your battery charge is good, use a pair of jumper cables and add a ground. Go from battery negative to chassis and try the slides again
