ACE 2016 29.3 Question

Something weird happened. I have my RV parked at my house and getting ready for a trip next week. I went out and tried to open the slide and nothing happened. Yes, I had switched the thingy from store to use. Nothing. So...I started the RV and let it run for a few minutes and turned it off. The slide then worked.

What is going on? What am I missing? I didn't leave that switch on so the battery shouldn't have been effected. Any ideas out there? I know its going to be something simple...it always is.

Never had that particular issue but it sounds like low coach battery voltage.
Running the engine charged the batteries enough to operate the slide.

Turning the battery switch off does not turn off all 12 volt loads. Some options I have read about in these threads is to install a battery disconnect switch in the battery compartment, hook up a trickle charger to the batteries, or plug the coach in to a 120 volt source. I have 120 volts available where mine is stored so it stays plugged in all the time.
