I can tell you from experience that if you have the slide out, the engine will start but the slide will NOT retract until you shut the engine off.

This happened to me in a park in Sturgis, ND on my way home after I bought our MH. Had the PS slide out at night and started the engine to warm up in the AM. Went to put the slide in and Nothing. A lot of head scratching went on (6:00 AM) and finally after another cup of coffee, decided to shut the engine off and try again. Sure enough, the slide came in.
Did not try to move with it out so I can't say if there is an interlock or not with the slide out and engine running. My guess is not.

My slide will not operate unless I have the emergency brake applied. I am sure if I disengage the parking brake the mh will move if the slide is out. I talked to one fellow who works at an rv repair shop and he said half their business is repairing slides people have driven away while still extended. Myself I find it all too easy to forget something without the circle check. Maybe someone got something out of one of cargo holds and didnt close it right. First corner, there goes your stuff. Heaven forbid the one of the person who tied their dog to the rear bumper and thought the wife had gotten the dog. CIRCLE CHECK

I do 2 circles. Paranoid of what I may have missed, and once in a while...bingo!
Back to the OP:
My manual says jacks down, slides out, and vicee versee. Will not take a risk with my baby

It's funny, but when I began, I tried using check lists... but they just didn't seem to fit my style. But, I am a "walk around" NUT. Maybe it has something to do with being full time, but I came to feel that I knew very well what needed to be done to get to travel mode and what the coach needed to "look like" before being put in gear. I never do less than three walk arounds before moving and it's worked so far.

We have all had the foibles of bad moments. It's a big club!
My mistakes are not as big as they used to be. But they will always happen.
Happy trails!

That stuff never happens to me: Now, I don't count the time I ran over the pooper scooper that was leaning against the front tire, or not hooking up the toad (I only went 5 feet), or leaving my full cup of coffee on the counter, because most of it spilled in the sink. I think I missed those because I was too busy walking around looking for my checklist and got behind schedule.......

Be cautious of the awnings also. A guy I know took out a turnpike toll booth with his. Fortunately there was no one in that booth.
