Need to turn it off to tow vehicle behind motor home. How do we turn it off?

Usually, On a pioneer stereo, the button that you press to change sources (Tuner, CD, etc etc).. if you hold it in, the unit will turn off.

Look for a button that says Power, or PWR near it with a Square and little line coming from the square, that means you need to hold that button to perform that function. Hope this helps.

Unit opens and closes on its own

I think I got the second half of the solution for this problem. Please look at post "Unit powers down when motorized face opens" for a solution. Seems like we need to buy the ribbon that connects to the face plate to fix this problem.

For most Pioneer single CD players, you can set the clock using the following steps: 1.Press and hold the SOURCE button until the unit shuts off. 2.Press and hold SOURCE again until the clock appears. With some models you will press and hold the FUNCTION or AUDIO button instead of the SOURCE button. 3.Press the left or right arrow to select the segment of time you wish to adjust. 4.Press the up or down arrows to increase or decrease the numbers in the blinking segment. 5.Once the clock is set correctly, press the SOURCE button to exit.
