Toots we do this at least once a month and have never found it to be dry.
As all slow cookers cook differently you may need to adjust the time for yours as it may cook at a higher temperature.

The vegetables usually cook down into the sauce and yes we have added coleslaw before as well 🙂

The beef was very dry until you added the gravy. Perhaps the cooking time is too long? I would think 8 hours would be enough… If putting in rolls, I would omit the vegetables and add coleslaw for flavour. Other than that, it was nice.
