    Probably ground but next time it doesn’t start do this..... before you put a jump box on it move the positive cable with your hand and then try and start, if no start do the same with the negative or start with the negative then positive. When you put the jump box on you are moving the cable ends, cables making a better connection, etc.

    Brand New. I replaced it when this problem started, even though mine and the autoparts store battery tester showed mine was good, I still bought a new one.

    Yeah, along with the others that suggested checking your cables I'll jump on that bandwagon as well. The problem is that the cables might look OK, but they can have internal corrosion that isn't visible. These vehicles are extremely voltage & current sensitive so any degradation isn't good. Also, your grounding points should be removed and cleaned.
