I inherited this site.

It was set up in DW using templates to client can modify guts of site and not harm nav structure.  I am not that familiar with templates.  

Client wanted me to add "Display Series' and "Custom Series"  flyouts to the RTA Slatwall Fixtures button.  I did that no problem.  http://www.windmillslatwall.com/Templates/template-retail.dwt

BUT, the problem is that this doesn't display on the site.  Ugh.  See link below: http://www.windmillslatwall.com/retail/rtaslatwall.htm

I know I am missing something minor but can't figure it out. Any ideas?

The command to force the update from the .dwt to the child pages is Modify | Template | Update Pages after you have made changes.  HOWEVER...if your changes are inside of an editable area, then they will not populate on existing child pages.  Instead, the changes will only show up on new pages.  I can't tell from your question where you are applying the changes.
