Aftermarket HU weird power issue (2012 JKU)

I have an odd problem with power getting to my aftermarket stereo. I have to 'reset' something by pulling a J13 fuse (it lists as Ignition off draw on fusebox).

This happened when I first put in a kenwood HU with the correct wiring harness for my 2012 JKU but then went away and would happen maybe once every other month or so. Not enough to be a real annoyance. Lately though, its happening almost everyday.

Anyone else have this? I'm wondering if I should just bypass using the wiring harness for power/ground and just run them straight to fused battery lead?
