From where is the power for Clarion in-dash radio?? Is it from engine or coach battery? 2012 Melbourne 29D. Thanks Ralph

Anything in-dash should be fed from the engine electrical system.

Actually it is powered from both. Jayco was using a diode system years ago, not sure if they still are. The radio will operate with the engine on or off. When the ignition is on you will be the getting power from the chassis battery. When the key is off you will get power from the coach battery.

Thanks Grumpy, I think mine is powered by both. It was unusal yesterday when i pressed the battery disconnect, but then I turned the key on and it powered up again! I was not thinking clear after that, one turned it off and the other seemed turn it on. I will do more testing next weekend when I get to go out RV'ing again!! Thanks Ralph

Ok, how to disconnect power when in storage? I had it disconnected before and then i turned the ignition on for some reason and power came back on to radio. Then I got confused decided to check with you folks. More testing and checking to come! Thanks for all the replys!!! Ralph

When I put ours away, I turn off the coach battery, and the Clarion turns off. If for some reason I want the coach battery on, like running the refer the night before a trip, I turn it off at the dash.
