I would also love to know how to do this. This is one option they did not have when I bought my 831bhss in November of 06 and it's a 2007 model. Any one with info/diagrams would be GREAT. Thanks

Man, carving up the skin of my trailer scares the crap out of me!!

I would install a set of jacks/plugs, then I could set a pair of good all weather (or not, really) speakers anywhere I wanted fo best listening enjoyment. Better choise of speakers, placement, and all that. Might use a standard outlet cover box to weather proof it a bit.

If you were really determined to spend money, perhaps a good set of wireless speakers?

We still take an old AM/FM/CD Player and plug it in outside. Volume control close at hand and can play it so as not to disturb the neighbors unless they yell Crank It Up.

Just curious as to how much wall thickness is required to mount external speakers in the wall. In units that have them mounted from the factory, is there cabinet space "inboard" of the speaker location?

My Concertcrap has the A B C selector switch, so the speakers wouldn't always be in use. I'd only use them when camping @ the races. I don't have the radio on much when "park" camping.

Our friends had an awesome little docking station for their iPOD that had real nice sound and was certainly loud enough for the camp site without being obnoxious. Me personally, I'm done with CDs if I can't put it on an SD card I won't do it. Only have SD in my Jeep, no CD player, no iPOD stuff.

I really liked the dock and so much easier than installing a stereo and speakers, only problem with it, you had to have an iPOD, After a dismal experience with getting an iPOD fixed under warranty that I won, I won't buy an Apple product ever so it would have to be something else for me.

This is exactly what I do. Got a Sony docking station and use my iPod. Sounds great and has a remote to control volume and skip or replay songs.

Rockwood sells the outside speaker. They are surface mount, so you'll only have to drill a very small hole to run the wiring. See photo below.



Call Cindy, at 574-642-2640 , in the Rockwood/Flagstaff parts dept. She's very helpful; and busy also. You may have to leave a message. She WILL return your call. She'll need you VIN number, so have it ready when calling.
