Battery Store/Use Switch Positions

I have a 2016 Thor Four Winds Class C 22B RV. Can someone clarify the correct position of the switch ie when the shore power is connected in order that the battery gets properly recharged. USE or Store position?

Also when the Generator is running what position Store or Use?

Store is only for when the rv is in storage.

Battery Store/Use Switch Positions

Keep in mind that it may not charge if it is in store mode and connected to power. Found out the hard way on our coach this past winter. Checked the wiring diagrams and sure enough no charging past the store relay.
So if your coach is like ours it must remain in the use position to charge.
