Radio - 31FE

Strange problem - When I am driving my MH, the radio or backup camera will not come on when I hit the power button on the radio mounted in the dash. I have to switch the power button from the auxillary battery from store to use to get power to the radio. Is this how it is suppose to work. Is this the way it is suppose to work?

Yes. The radio is on the house battery. Not the chassis battery.

On a side bar, and I'm not exactly sure how it is wired, but if you store the battery I don't think you are charging it either with the chassis.

Any reason you are storing the battery while driving?

Battery

Thanks for the info. While driving the MH power button will be switched to "in use".

You really should have it set to "in use" at all times except for extended storage when not plugged in.

I keep the store position in "store" only when not using the MH for long periods of time, more then a few days.
