Has anyone seen this or have another solution to this problem? I could just add a wireless speaker system but it's another thing to carry and set up and take down.

Thanks!
In this situation, a Bluetooth speaker would be very handy.

We don't use our outside speakers ever, but I have certainly experienced campsites where the firepit is behind or even on the driver's side of the RV. Bad design in my opinion.

As for the speakers, I'm not sure exactly what you are asking. Removable exterior speakers? So you would have wires running from the side of your RV to where your firepit is? That doesn't sound like a very workable solution.

The wireless speakers, on the other hand, sound like an excellent solution. It doesn't seem like set up and take down of a wireless speaker system would be all that difficult.

Ideally, it would be nice to have something like the kohler showerhead with removable speaker. The premise would be the same. Almost like the current speaker housing would be the dock for the speakers. Does that make sense?

Now that I think about bluetooth options.... I have a question.

Is there a bluetooth system that will receive a signal from the Furrion system? Essentially, it would allow they factory stereo to be played, and then an independent external bluetooth stereo outside the camper would also pickup the signal and play...

Is that even an option, or does the Furrion only receive bluetooth vs transmitting it?

You can buy small units that plug into a headphone jack and transmit Bluetooth. You can find them on Amazon.

I love music and enjoy it everywhere I go. Yes I enjoy my quiet times camping but even a low music in the background is nice. Me and my friends float the rivers a lot and I build custom fiberglass and carbon fiber stereo units. I am already planning on upgrading my stereo in my Hummingbird after I take possession of it. This is one of the custom stereos we've built for the river

Thats cool! What size batteries do you use? What is the battery life with moderate sound levels?

Kicker makes a portable splashproof outdoor speaker called the Bullfrog Jump. Looks like they sell a lot of them.
