MOD -power switch for Jenson stereo/DVD player

Finally added a switch for my stereo to denergize it from 12V battery when Trailer is in storage between camping trips. Hopefully this will prevent the batttery from discharging so quickly. It was pretty easy to install. here are some picsClick image for larger version

That's a good idea. I was thinking of doing the same but putting both the stereo and the TV antenna booster on the same switch. The antenna booster off/on is the one I always forget. Though it's isn't really a big deal since I have a complete battery disconnect.
What I would really like to do is have a independent, hidden but easily accessible power cut-off switch for the power jack.

sorry its a little fuzzy. But the two red wires are the ones going up to switch the 12V on and off.
