Yea, I find it annoying... especially in a radio that is SPECIFICALLY meant for rv's that will spend a lot of time not in use. Seems like a poor design.


I just keep my trailer plugged in to a 15amp circuit when I am not camping. It keeps the battery charged between trips.

I'd love to be able to do this. My lot doesn't really have the amenities for it.

The idea behind it is to maintain the clock and station presets you may have programmed.

I do find it strange that with today's technology they are not using non-volatile memory in these things. Then power COULD be removed with no loss of presets.

Just for your future reference the breakers only affect the 120V shore power. All 12V circuits are protect by fuses.

I get that... but is there a need to have such bright lights displayed all the time? In the middle of the night there is enough light to illuminate my entire main room from the clock and associated blue lighting.

The radio in my car maintains the time, but nothing is illuminated until I turn the car on.

The radio staying on all the time is most annoying when you are sleeping. We finally installed a switch in between the audio deck and power coming from the battery.
