It's a nice-looking Jensen AM/FM radio...
Where is it located in your rig?

It's just the sound system for your Coach!
(They wouldn't put the rearview camera controls anyplace but up by the driver... )

Try finding a decent FM station, and turn up the volume!

Ours has an A and B switch for speakers above the bed and also for external speakers. Also has bluetooth so I can play music from my iPhone.

There are two radios. On our unit the radio at the front is for speakers in the door and also has a set of speakers above the sofa. The radio in the bedroom is for bedroom speakers and outside speakers.

You would have to rewire the power to the front radio to do this. We just put the USE / STORE switch in the USE position and all is good.

Until you sort out your DC voltage issues/USE-STORE issues you are spinning your wheels chasing down "other" issues. Do you have a multimeter? Or is your inverter voltmeter all the information you have? Have you located the solenoid operated by your USE/STORE switch? Many people have found their problem to be the small inline fuse to the control line on that solenoid.

You might want to go into the settings on that Jensen radio...turn off the backlight, as it can cause battery drain.

Danford- My radio/camera display in the dash works off the chassis power and requires the key on IGN or ACC. The "use store" would have no effect since that radio does not work off the coach battery.

back up camera

when I drive my camper and for the last two time I have drove it my camera do not work , it only work when I am on shore power or generator power, there is a solenoid in the engine compartment under my coolant jug, I guess I need to check it out and see if there is a inline fuse there.

I could not find a setting to turn off the backlight and would really like to, it is too bright, any help?

The solenoid we are referencing is located under your mattress behind the converter panel. It is easier to get to if you put the slide out. If you do not hear a click when toggling your use/store switch the most likely problem is a small 5amp in line fuse located on the solenoid itself. Have the same model as you. The fuse blows occasionally.

It is the mode/menu button, and the "Light 0" option. Here is the manual for the unit. https://www.asaelectronics.com/downl...ser_manual.pdf
