I believe they are talking about the Schwintek slideout system which should always be opened and closed fully.

Yes, the OP identified there unit as a 23IKSS - kitchen slide which is a Schwintek, at least on mine.

2nd battery

My RV tech saw my added battery and said "that's smart the slides wear out a single battery quickly"
might be worth considering.

It seems to me that would be true only if the owner allowed the battery to discharge excessively. I doubt that a single in/out cycle would lead to failure.

We have been hooked up to 110 for the past 2 weeks, shouldn't the battery be charged up?


Does the battery get charged while towing the trailer?


Maybe my DH crossed some wires when he hooked it back up a while ago and we just didn't notice until now.

Yes It should be. On AC, your trailer's converter charges the battery. I assume Shamrock still specs WFCO. All WFCO power converters are automatic three-stage chargers.

Somewhat. It takes a fair amount of driving to charge a low battery.

Have you checked your batteries voltage and was it low?

During our walkthrough the tech mentioned that its best to be hooked to shore power or the running TV to decrease the battery drain while running the slide.
your 7 pin should have a hot wire feeding 12V power while running.
