issue with temperature control when using plate setter

I have had my egg for a couple of years now and love it. I have no problem controlling the temperature when using the grate doing ribs etc. But today when I did a turkey I had problems getting the temp to go up to 350. I started with a newly cleaned egg, fresh charcoal. I installed the plate setter, put a drip pan on it and the turkey on the V rack. Put a digital temp indicator in the bird which gives me both meat temp and egg temp. The egg temp around the bird always showed a few degrees colder that the temp indicator in the lid but that is to be expected.  I got the egg to 350 and put the plate setter and bird in. At first I could get it up to 330 but after and hour it fell to 300. I tried opening the vents and it actually lowered the temp on the indicator on the lid. Played with all combinations and still could not get above 300. Any ideas or solutions
