New to us 2003 Greyhawk Slide wont work Help

Hi all, I am sorry if this is a n00b question, we just got a 2003 greyhawk 24ss and dont have much of a clue as to what we are doing. I read the instruction manual, but the slide does not seem to work right now. The dealer demo'd it for us a month ago and it was fine. We picked up the RV on saturday and couldnt get the slide to go out. It moves about 2 inches on one of the sides and then stops. I think the battery needs to be charged, but even when we had the RV plugged in overnight it wouldnt work. Yes, we did remove the transit bars.

Does the battery need a full charge to run the slide?
Does the 120 plug in charge the battery (or does the generator only charge it)?
Any other suggestions?

Thank you in advance - I tried searching and read all the manuals I could not get a clear answer.

Yes, you need a fully charged battery to run the slides. When you plug in to shore power, it should trickle charge the battery. But it would be faster to actually put a charger on it, and let it charge overnight on 12V low setting. Normally, you should not need the generator to charge. We leave the shore power connected full time while sitting in the driveway at home, and it keeps the battery at full charge. Also, don't let a discharged battery stay in freezing temps - it can and will freeze and crack the case. Hope this helps.
