Cannot get lights on rear view monitor to turn off

There is a video screen for the rear and side view cameras in the dash.

When I shut everything off in the coach, the lights behind the buttons on this monitor do not go out. These are draining the battery!

I've attached 2 pictures. The first one shows the monitor in the dash.
The second is at night with the flash turned off.

Any idea how to cut power to this thing (short of removing a fuse)?

Thanks!

I traced a power cord out the back of the video screen to a fuse under the dash. So I can pop the fuse out and it kills the power to the video screen buttons, and will no longer draw power when the coach is in storage. This is great, but I have a hard time believing this is the solution - there has got to be a way to turn the power off on this piece of equipment so that it does not draw power!

My Georgetown has a switch on somewhere on that panel that allows you to listen to the radio while parked off the house batteries.

I can't quite read the toggle switches or exactly how your system is set up. My 378 has a radio power switch so the radio and entertainment can be played with the key off. This is pretty much standard on all motor homes. So with key off your radio switch should be off to kill power. Could this be your problem?

Is the radio switch off on one of the upper left switches?
