Question about Boating
The above mentioned unit has a pigtail with a red and white RCA jack coming out of it and a fixed red and white one flush with the back of the unit. In both cases, they are female recepticles. Can you tell me if these are for an auxillary input? A subwoofer ouput maybe? I don't want to try anything and risk "frying" the unit. It is the original sound system in my 1997 Sea Ray if that helps in looking anything up
Yes, the yellow wire is the switched hot lead - it is typically connected in one way or another to the ignition switch. There is also a smaller gauge red wire that is connected directly to the battery (through a fuse of course). Both of these wires have to have power for the radio to work. Also the black wire has to be connected to a good ground. If all three of these wires are confirmed to be in good order (power where there should be power, ground where there should be ground and no shorts) the radio should at least power up when they are all hooked up and the ignition is on.

SOURCE: Wiring Freedom 20 inverter
make sure your new inverter is made for 220 volt supply as that is what the red wire represents. its the other leg of a 220 circuit and should not be connected to your new inverter until you read the manual to see if it is designed for this and if so how to wire it in. it could cause you are the unit serious harm if you connect a 110 inverter to a 220 circuit. consult an rv repair shop or a good electrition if you cant find the needed info. it may actually be printed on the side of the inverter as well.

SOURCE: I am trying to remove
Yes there are tools specifically provided from the manufacturer to remove the radio, If you do not have these a long feeler gauge, or emery board will help. There are two catches on the basket that the radio sits in, you need to relieve theses so that you can pull the radio out from the consul. If you haven't removed the trim from around the radio you will need to do so before you try to remove the radio. The trim usually just pops off with a little help from a small flathead screw driver. Once the trim is off you can then slip the emery boards or feeler gauges into the space between the radio and the basket. you will feel a little resistance right before the tool sets into the lock reliefs. then once you have them in place you should be able to slide the radio out.
