Use/Store switch question

I have a 19ft 2018 Tommy Bahama AS and have a question on the operation of the refrigerator and Furnes systems. If I want to run these appliances on Propane, do I need to have the use/store switch in the use position? Thanks for the feedback.

If yours is anything like our 2017 Flying Cloud 19 (should be pretty much identical as far as systems are concerned), then “yes” you need to leave the battery switch in “use” position.

Both of those systems use some 12V power, even when operating on propane.

I concur with BikeCamper. Yes, the switch should be in "Use" when you need to operate appliances.

Ditto.

The battery tells the propane when to turn on.
