You have been cursed with the most annoying problem a car have and there's no easy way to find it... finding it usually involves a meter, a fuse puller (pull fuse and see what the meter does) and patience

Thank you I noticed after car was running for about 15 min. Alternator was struggling causing engine to slow down. May try to change under warranty. Will let you know.

Normally an alternator will make a "whining" noise when heavily loaded but not bog the engine down. I would pull the remote fuse ... leave it off over night

Is That fuse labeled remote fuse?
