Radio tuns on by itself

The radio comes on in my 2011 sunset trail 29ss on its own. We were out camping last weekend and it was fine. Since we got home and parked in the driveway and plugged in to our house I have had to go out at least 4 times in the past week to turn off the radio. Also the light on the front of the trailer will only work if the radio is on. Any thoughts on what could be going on.
Thanks Allan

Ghosts. Maybe a nearby remote control activates your radio. As far as the front lights, that's strange that they would be wired together like that.

Some radios (I don't know about yours) have a 12 volt "output" to power an amplifier which comes on/off with the radio. Perhaps some "craftsman" at the factory thought this would be an easy wire to tap into.

if your radio has an alarm, check to see if it is set

That's the more likely culprit. Happened to me once that the alarm on the radio was accidentally turned on and would turn on the unit at the set time. Scared the heck out of me in the middle of the night. Lol

If you have the Jensen system installed, there is an alarm on it. Good place to check.
