Radio problem

I picked up my Coach after dealer installed CB radio. My am/fm cd radio used to work with ignition key on when master switch was in the off position. Now only the cb radio will work when ignition is turned on. The only way I can play the radio is to turn the master switch on. The dealer was closed when I picked up the coach so I couldn't ask them about it. I also live a couple hours away so not really convienent to take it back. 1st question can I travel with the master switch in the on position without causing any damage to any of the systems? 2nd question Should I rewire the radio and How would I do that? I have a 2011 Coachman Mirada on a Ford V-10 chassis. Any help would be appreciated as we are planning to travel in a few weeks and I would like to have this resolved.

1st question: Yes, you can have the switch either on or off when traveling. That switch is for when the rig is parked and not being used. Sounds like they rewired the radio so that it won't run the battery down when the rig is not being used. This would be a good thing. Most modern radios have displays & clocks that use a tiny bit of power even when off.
