Hi Charlie,

I had a similar issue on my Hurricane. Turns out the the switch for the coach batteries was in "store" mode, and for whatever reason the dash unit runs off the coach batteries. Flipped the switch and all was fine. Hope your fix is as easy!

Jim

The radio fuse is the #4 fuse in the main fuse panel and the power does come from the house batteries. The inline fuse behind the radio is to keep the presets alive when the ignition is off. It is powered by the chassis battery. Note: When the hazard flashers are activated, the dash radio will select the rear view camera and override all other radio functions.

I also had this problem...called the dealer...he asked if I had the RV in "store" mode. Sure enough that was the problem. When not plugged in or using the generator, the switch has to be in "use" mode to use the radio. I have had my unit for a year, but this is the first time using it after being stored. I leave it in "use" mode all the time until storing for the winter, since I use it often throughout the year.

Of course this could be unique to the Miramar.
