Another thing to check is the fuse holders.  Yes, the in-line fuse holders supplied by the manufacturer.  Fuses alone due to their nature will produce a minute voltage drop, but if the fuse holder clips are loose or dirty, (or the ends of the fuse are dirty/corroded) the voltage drop may well be large enough to show the results you see.

At the same time, check the power plug/socket on the rig or its power harness.  A loose/dirty connection at that point is just about as bad.
