Use/Store switch

I have my 2017 Vegas in storage mode and plugged into 120 from my garage. Am I correct in placing the use/store switch in "use" position while in this configuration? Appreciate it.

I believe you are correct in leaving the store/use switch in the use position. In store, I don't think it charges either the house or chassis battery or maybe both. I keep my coach plugged in all winter and have had no issues with batteries being dead or drained. I assume its the same on a Vegas but someone with a Vegas may know for sure.

On ours, with shore power and USE/STORE in USE, we have charging on COACH and CHASSIS. That is as long as I have started the COACH, BEFORE I connect to shore power.

It is my understanding that if the USE/STORE is in STORE, the COACH batteries are completely isolated.
