I've checked them both with a volt-ohm meter and they check out as designed. The radio functions fine.
The problem is whenever I am playing the radio and I turn on a 12 V light the radio goes off. When I turn off the light the radio goes on. (Any light). I have no battery installed and am running exclusively on "shore Power" and univolt.
Any suggestions? Please
I don't have any suggestions except to make a note to myself to think about running a fused hot wire to the radio bay while I've got the neighboring side panels removed. I read about other people having challenges with radio power, especially the live line that keeps the clock and the memory from resetting every cycle.
All my radio wires exit the panel near the front curbside. The radio I took out looked like it was a moonlight special. I never tried it. I didn't care.
For your problem, if it were my problem, I'd try a different radio and see if it does the same thing, or maybe a 12 volt
jumper light to watch what happens when I flip a switch.
