That's right. There is a place on the control panel that lights up and said "parking brake not set". (Vary small letters).

Another way to operate the slides or jacks if you have an older coach that has separate gen or engine door switch is to extend the gen or engine compartment, then open the slide or jack solenoid you wish to move, then use the gen or engine switch to operate which ever function you wish to do. Don't forget to close the solenoid after your operation is completed. I used this method to move my slide and jacks while my box was off for repairs. It is easier if you are retracting because you don't have to do an "open" operation before you retract the slide or jacks. I was skeptical at first but it worked like a champ.

Update on the slide issue: I finally fixed the slide problem. It ended up being a bad chip on the control panel circuit board. I spent a week or so troubleshooting the control box and panel with HWH technical support. Finally, the technician recommended that i send the control panel, wiring harness that goes between the panel and control box, and the control box to HWH for testing. In all between shipping costs, parts, and labor it cost around $150.00 to fix the problem. Thankfully I was not under a time constraint because it took a month to fix the slide problem. Thank you everyone that guided me to a solution.

The guy I bought my Alpine Coach from told me that the irv2 Alpine owners forum is invaluable. He was right!
