Radio Rocker Switch Problem

I am new to the forum. I purchased a used 2014 400BH. When I push the dash radio rocker switch to listen to the radio without the key in the ignition, it adversely affects several other circuits. My leveling jacks are powered up, the night shade doesn't function, the outdoor awnings don't work,and the front tv doesn't work. This can't be the way it should function. Has anyone experienced this or have any input? Thanks.

Switch entertainment unit to tuner or radio setting ... this will solve your problem and result in much better sound since it will go thru surround sound and subwoofer

What type of motorhome do you have? What does your radio switch do when you push it? Can you listen to your dash radio when you do not have your ignition key turned on?

If the key is in the ignition most if not all you describe happens. Remove the key and try again.

Paul doesn't the key have to be on or in accessories for all that to happen. Just having the key in the ignition I wouldn't think would do anything.

Rocker Switch for Radio

In my Berk it allows me to listen to the dash radio with the coach off.

Thank you for your responses. Please note that all of the circuit issues are occurring without the key in the ignition. Can anyone tell me how their in dash radio rocker switch works? Again, I have a 2014 Berkshire 400 BH. Thanks.

If you push the rocker switch (down I think) and the light on the switch goes on, that will turn the radio on and you can listen to the dash radio without having to use the ignition key.
