Battery Disconnect Switch - HELP - Stuck in Store mode

'18 Flying Cloud 25'
HELP! Stored trailer a month ago. Now ready to pack up for a trip.
Connected to shore power, but will not switch from "Store" to "Use" Nothing works.
When I hold the switch in the "Use" position, the lights will turn on. The toggle switch will not stay in the "Use" position.

Update:
I cycled the inverter, and then the system would stay in the "use" position.
Something is still wacked. So suggestions would be appreciated

Since it goes to use when you hold the switch the relay is good and the mechanism is not frozen but the spring loaded articulation is stuck and the rod does not flop to the side to hold it "on". You can rap on the body of the relay while someone cycles it on and off to see if you can free up the articulation point and spring. Try it several times first soft and then with a bit more conviction (If you break it you can always bypass the relay by bolting all the lead and load wires together). If that does not work bypass it and order a new one. Amazon sells it for about $35.

Edit: to be clear the relay is by the power center usually bolted to it. It is nowhere near the remote Use store switch. Don't rap on the switch or a new one is in your future.

Thanks Brian, sadly the relay tripped sometime over the last few hours. Was working yesterday no problem. This morning: no power switch won't even cycle the power on and off like yesterday.

The relay is almost always screwed to the back of the power distribution center. Can you access that? Also since yours is at least working, have someone press the switch and you will be able to track it down from the sound of the solenoid.

Edit: sometimes it is near the 12VDC bus bars. I have a FBT. it is on the power center under the curbside mattress.

On my 25 FBQ the relay is all the way forward by the 12v bus bars, as Brian suggests.
