New Outdoor speakers

I have a 2010 297bhs I have a stereo with Speakers A & B button. I do not have out door speakers but I want them Tell me if this will work. I just plan to pull the stereo out of the cabinet to get access to the back. Hook some speaker wire and run through the cabinets to a spot outside. Drill a hole through the side for the wires, caulk it. And then find some flush mounted speakers and screw them to the outside and run a bead of caulk around them. Done. Am I missing anything. questions,
1) Do they make flush mounted speakers? Do not want to cut a hole in the side of my camper
2) DO I need to mount them to a stud?
3) If yes to No. 2, how do I find said stud

Thanks
Chris

The factory outdoor speakers on my 31 RLDS are not flush mounted

Why mount speakers? Have them on my 2014 White Hawk and have never used them. Unless you are boondocking, most CG's restrick external music. Neighbors typically don't want to listen to your choice in music. Outdoor entertainment can easily be accomodated using a blue tooth device and wireless speakers rather than having to deal with hard wiring and holes in the camper.

Your plan sounds good and I would use flush mount marine speakers. If you have fiberglass you wont need to worry about studs with the speakers.

I have aluminum siding. What about wireless speakers. Are they any good?

Go with a bluetooth rechargeable one. You can also buy an adaptor that will plug into the head unit phone jack so it will pair unless you use your phone or Ipod.

I like it so I can move it around to where I am in the campsite and keep the music within the confines of my site. Rarely can you hear it beyond my site as I face the speaker towards the unit. Hardly ever use my outdoor speakers.

I agree that wireless is the way to go. There are quite a few high quality speakers available.

Just a point of clarification - flush mount means you will be cutting holes to recess the speakers flush with the surface material while surface mount means you will just mount them on the surface with screws, bolts, etc., without cutting holes.

I have factory speakers on my 32rlds. They sound like an old AM transistor radio. I think I must just get a small boom box to set on the table near the door of the TT.

My bad on flush mount. I would for sure go with surface mount and think about wireless/blue tooth. We use jawbone wireless and can place the speaker where we want to.

I had Kicker marine speakers in my boat, they sounded great and are obviously waterproof.


I have been in a lot of CG's in the last 10 years and have never been told I could not play music. I guess some might but I haven't seen one yet.
