Question about tv/radio play without key

Hi, I'm new to the forum and my 2018 used fr3 30ds.
My question is can I get the radio or TV to play when I'm parked? Or does the key have to be in the ignition and e-brake on?

I did search and couldn't find anything here.

I'm sure I will have many more questions as time goes by.

Thanks, Dan

TV can be, it needs to have the inverter turned on (assuming yours has one)
Your antenna needs to be tuned on (there is a switch on the side look for the king Jack on the celling) more blue lights the better, and a push switch above the sink in the cabinet. Once you turn the antenna on you will need to go into the menu setting of the TV and perform a Air Scan for channels.

Radio, I not sure how yours is set up, there is a switch right underneath that says Radio, toggle it one way an the radio will turn on.

I have 2019 FR3 33DS

I don't have an FR3 but in the GT there is a rocker switch on the center console the will switch the radio power to the coach batteries so it can be used without the ignition.

Our 2019 has a rocker switch on doghouse for radio. No key needed
