Default Clarion CMD4 with remote control head

Is there any way to realistically keep any programmed stations on this unit if the Perko switches are used to remove all power ?

Just finished replacing speakers as well as remote head and now that the radio is working, I was wondering how to keep any presets?

Does it save them for a short while thru a capacitor?

Would it draw enough to concern me if we used the boat every two weeks or so? Unfortunately where it is dry racked, I don't have power available for a full time plug in...

You should have a yellow wire that goes direct to the battery, so that the memory holds.

That being said my radio is hardwired and it sits dry stacked weeks at a time with no battery issues.

My clarion marine radio will keep presets for a year with no power applied according to the manual. Clarion designs thier radios with perko swithes in mind. You should be fine.
