28DSBH - Outside Speakers Only Working Intermittently

Just got my 28DSBH back from dealer & getting some electrical wiring related to trailer brakes repaired. Now learned that the outside (C) speakers only work intermittently. Doesn't matter if it's connected to iPhone, radio, CD/DVD - same issue persists with the outside speakers, which had been working perfectly on all previous camping trips. One seems not to work at all now, and the other comes and goes. Tried fiddling with the balance & fader, so that's not it. Also pulled the radio from it's mount and looked for loose wires, all to no avail.

Any suggestions or previous experience with this? Any info is appreciated!

Just replaced mine. It seems they used add a splice type (quick splice) terminal instead of a normal male/female terminal. I bet if you pulled the speaker the terminals are loose on the spade connector. Depending on age you may want to have a spare set of speakers ready to go in. Mine were water damaged on a 2013.

Much appreciated. I saw that the outside speakers are sealed to prevent moisture from getting in - did you strip that off when removing the old ones, and then replace it, and with what sealant? Did you have to pull the microwave oven out to get at the left speaker? Thanks again!

Both speakers are easy to get to, work on from the outside, I just used some white exterior caulk I had to seal them back up. You'll have to "cut" the old speaker out/caulk with a razor knife. Then I used the razor knife to slightly trim the opening larger, about 1/8" was needed to put the new speaker in. Depending on what you buy you may not need to trim the opening.

Kerner - thank you again. Do you happen to know offhand the dimensions of the hole and depth of the speakers? I know the stock speakers are 6" across (total) and want to be sure if I upgrade I order the correct size. Thanks much.

My backup for outside speakers was to pick up one of those BLUE TOOTH speakers from WALMART... They work great and will go anywhere with no wiring...

Always neat to have a good PLAN B
