The change in RVIA standards occurred around 2008, when it became obvious that owners were often having low voltage issues with slide operation. And that prohibiting slide movement with the engine running was a solution looking for a problem. Previous RVIA standard prohibited slide operation with the key on, but the new standard required it. Just a different focus.

My 2009 Monaco will not move any of the 4 slides (2 electric, 2 hydraulic) when the key is turned on.
Thereís an RIVA sticker on the side if it too. Thereís plenty of juice in the four batteries to move them. I usually extend two at the same time without problem.

On my 2007 Discovery I run the slide outs and jacks a lot without the engine running. Just turn the ignition on and be plugged into shore power and it works well.

I just wish our rig wouldn't start with the slides out!

My 2012 Coachman Concord 300 has three slides. They will not work if the engine is running as a safety precaution. Like kids playing with switches while driving down the road. I read somewhere to have a door open to not trap air bringing slides in. Ha, its not a VW Bug! The seals are unsealed when a slide is in motion. I do know where the solenoid is and have a jumper for it if for some reason the battery is low and I want the engine alternator helping. Have never had to do that.

I don't know about that. I replaced the screens in my screened door with plexiglass since my wife wants the RV air conditioned all the time. And, when I bring in a slide, sometime the door pops open. I don't know how much pressure that is and hence how much force it exerts on the slide.
