Radio on house battery

I want to run an in dash radio from the in house batteries on a 08 Airstream Interstate. There doesnít seem to be a switch to do this, at least one I can find. Iím thinking of running some wires to the back of the RV where the in house batteries are but that seems like itís going to be a pain in the ass, another option Iím looking at is using an AC/DC converter on a plug outlet near the front of the RV and wiring that to the radio. If anybody has any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.

According to the manual there’s a relay behind the radio that switches between the main and house batteries automatically. But the key needs to be half turned in the ignition to turn the radio on. It's a fancy after market Kenwood GPS/Sirius/everything radio, maybe the people who installed it did something wrong it seems like you should be able to turn it on without the key in the ignition. Thats the goal.
