Another Newby Question

First I have to say I love this group. You have helped us when we were on the road and with other questions when I couldn't get answers from dealer.

So here's my question. We've noticed a switch as you walk in door of our 2015 Vegas 24.1. It is marked battery. It has "use" on top and "store" on bottom. Can someone tell me what to do with this button. I know I've accidentally pushed it when turning on lights as the light switches are there also. Didn't notice it doing anything. Obviously it has something to do with the battery but not sure what. Thanks in advance for any help.

It has to do with turning off all the things that drain the house batteries. I highly suggest you read Ed's Manual. All is explained.

Added: HWH Kick-Down Leveler; RoadMaster Anti-sway bars; Tornado Rotary Tank Rinser; Accede Backup Sensor Kit; cylinder locks (w/one combo lock); custom sink cover; Kenwood DDX 5706S front radio; Pioneer MVH-X5560BT rear radio; Oxygenics Shower head; ScanGuage II; Blue Ox Tow Bar w/RVi Brake 2; Winegard Rayzar Automatic TV antenna; Trimark Steel door lock; Dometic 310 toilet; whatever is next.

Indeed: Read Ed's manual.

In short, however: The Use/Store switch will disconnect most stuff from the house battery (not all--if you want all install your own disconnect). The general rule is: Leave it in Use in all cases except when storing the coach unplugged (and then you'll want that extra disconnect).
