Having starting issues when I try to restart the motor while its still hot. It starts fine when the motor is cool, but after its hot it acts like the starter can't overcome the compression built up in the motor. I can put it in gear and roll it and eventually the starter can kick it over. It runs great just wont start hot. Any Ideas?

I know it's not a prowler, but I had an older Chevy motorhome years ago that did this same exact thing. When the engine got hot, the starter bearings would expand to the point they created friction within the starter itself.......couldn't turn over. When it cooled down, it cranked the motor no problem.
