Getting out of Storage

Ok folks, I've gotta a remedial question for you.

Our 36' RE Redwood has been setting in climate controlled storage for the last 4 months and we are about to take it out (we were on the road for 2 years so this is the first time we've stored it). What am I to expect when I open the garage door? I assume the battery will be dead. We have a generator. Will starting the generator charge the battery? If so, how long will it take before I can use the hydraulics for raising/lowering the camper to attach it to the truck and take off?

Thank you!

Plug it into the truck if the batteries are dead then you can use the jacks.

When necessary I jump start the gen, via the truck to RV batteries. The gen charges the batteries via the RV converter. About fifteen minutes of gen charging and the slides should operate.
