Ever wonder what's behind your Concertone

I took my Concertone out a while back to see if there was anything disconnected because my AM/FM no longer works. This is what it looked like:

Truth is, it probably doesn't look much worse than what I would do. Well, the wiring anyway. I sure would have cleaned up the wood mess and drill debris. Anyway, no loose connection, AM/FM still doesn't work. But since I have XM on my iPhone, I just use that anyway.

I also wondered enough so to remove it & looked - yes found all of the wires. But also realized there was a lot of wasted space below it. The project isn't finished but it will be more space for hanging cloths - figure it will be about right for 3 or 4 coats!

Who ever did that work should be ashamed. How long would it have taken to clean up the mess. Further more, what was used to cut the holes? My goodness don't they have hole saws or a drill and a fine tooth saw. No pride in doing work like that. I would fire the person who did that if I were in charge. You could do everyone a favor and forward that photo to Forest River - Wildcat - division. I would be curious what they have to say about the work.

I removed mine just to make sure all the wires were connected properly. Mine was clean but the wires were a mess all balled up. Only about 1/2 as bad as the picture posted....

If you remove any panel inside an RV, you'll find sawdust and bits of wood. After the cabinet install, they cut out holes for the accessories and leave all the junk in the walls where it is out of sight. Any time I open anything, I bring the shop-vac to clean out the mess they left. As far as the Concertone, sometimes they just stop functioning. I went through three of them, all under warranty.

They cleaned all the mess up except all the holes look like they were made by a chainsaw in our trailer. Of course all the wiring looks like a 2 year old may have done it.

I removed mine to put a toggle switch on the power lead....got tired of waking up to loud music at various times of the night even tho the unit was turned off. One night I woke up and my outdoor speakers were cranking out the music. Also it would turn on and run my battery down when stored for the week. No longer tho...power to unit killed unless we want to use the piece of junk...which is never because it sounds like crap.

They do a great job of concealing their mistakes!
