Again thanks to all who commented earlier on my problem
Problem solved
This radio has two power feeds one is the ignition and the other comes in before the ignition So the ignition acts to break the circuit which we dont have in a caravan so got around the problem by wiring in a switch on the secondary circuit to turn on //of when required seems to work a treat now FINGERS CROSSED

Yes Basically what I was saying, as all car radios have a permanent feed to keep its memory alive for station settings etc and a ign ACC feed to liven it up to work.
As you say in a van it will never turn off unless a switch in that ACC fed line.
Although I fitted one in my Roadstar and it switched off as normal and I never did anything to it.
Maybe different switching method between brands as my VW radio will turn on without a key in and doesnt run the battery flat.

Got a bit confused with your title saying "Car Radio change over" LOL
