georgetown radio help

Need some info on George Town 2014 radio. If I am parked and plugged in and I turn on the radio using on dash switch, am I using the shore power, or battery power and if battery power, which batteries am I using ( coach or motor) ?
As a follow up, can I connect a wireless speaker ( blue tooth) through this radio. It has an blue tooth option which I assume is for a cell phone, but maybe there is a plug in of some type that would connect to the speaker... Any help would be.....

I don't know for sure, but you could check by making sure your rig is not hooked up to shore power, no inverter and no gen set and then turn off the coach batteries by using the battery disconnect. If it still works, it is pulling from the engine battery

As to the bluetooth...no you can't hook up a bluetooth speaker...it is the same thing as your radio...a device which receives BT info from elsewhere, amplifies and plays it through speakers. the radio does not boadcast bluetooth music.
Alternatively...if your radio has unused conventional audio outputs and your BT speaker has an input jack...you could wire it up to play with a pair of RCA jacks coupled via wire to a headphone jack.
Which radio do you have?

The dash radio is 12VDC from the chassis battery. Its a mute point however cause when connected to shore power all batteries are charged in parallel controlled by the BCC underneath the step.

Therefore the radio is powered by the shore power pedestal in effectively
