Both slides along with the awning work and the generator will start with the coach battery switch in the off position in my 3120. I believe your batteries will charge with shore power and the switch off if you have the Progressive Dynamics converter. My converter is isolated with the switch off. The ignition switch position on my 3120 has no impact to slide operation.
There have been running changes over the years not neccesarily associated with model year change overs so you may find differences between a unit made right after or before yours.
If your equipment doesn't operate the way you want it to go ahead and change wiring or whatever you need to get it operating the way you want it to. My coach radio was connected to the chassis battery so I needed to have the ignition switch on or in the accessory position for it to operate. I ran a feed from the coach battery system to a selector switch in the dash so I can operate from either source. I also found that my water filter only filtered the water if I was using the onboard fresh water tank and the water would bypass the filter when using a city water hookup from a campsite. Since I want to filter water from a campsite water supply I replumbed the system to do all my water used whether it's from the onboard tank or city water.
