That's odd - We have a 2015 34QS and there is actually a cutoff on the slide motor circuit that prevents the slide from being operated (in or out) while the engine is running. Believe me, this function has caused more than one "pucker" when faced with a totally non-responsive slide before I realized the engine was running . . .
Having the jacks up/down or having the generator running/not running does not affect the slide operation in terms of this cut off feature. Also, I don't know that I've ever had an issue with "low batteries" not having enough juice to operate the slide (in other words, 12.5 V has been more than enough to operate them). I have experienced a little bit of a slow down on maybe the fourth slide after operating them all one after another and not having fully charged batteries.
