I had the same problem. Would get worse the colder it got. Breaker would open, wait a few seconds and start again.
Cleaned the slide guides and drive rails and lubed the drive rails and no problem.

“Generally hooked to shore power even at home.“

That’s too bad. Really limits where you can camp. What you can do.

Here's what I found to be true with my Itasca Cambria bedroom slide. The rails get gummed up and the motor will shut off on the internal protector, cool off, then operate a bit again.
I removed the bedroom platform, cleaned the rails then lubed them up. Be careful what lube you use as wd and similar end up causing gum and you are back to square one.
Get and use a lube designed for sliders.

My rig gets a lot of attention. After each trip whatever needs repairs gets it, however I noticed my bed slide was still having issues.
I removed the platform,(easy two screws and its off) and paid closer attention. I have small cutouts for water and electrical to come through the floor, dust and such was coming into that area and gumming things up EVEN THOUGH I was using slider lube.

Well, I sealed those holes and have had less issues than before. We camp in the desert and on dirt parking lots so with the slide out it is a magnet for dirt.
