Crock pot and beans

I recently purchased an electric slow cooker (crock pot).I would like to do a baked bean thing in the crock however I'm not sure if I should just bung everything into the crock,dried beans and all and slow cook for 8 or 10 hrs or should I precook the beans first and then bung it all in? The manual says sugar and acid have a hardening effect on the beans.I read an epicurious.com reader review on BBs which says throw it all in, no presoak or cooking the beans.
Any suggestions or tips?
