That is correct. The FR rep indicated that was new for 2016, at least on the 3011DS that I was looking at. Seems they are moving away from using the in-dash system for entertainment in the coach and just primarily using it for when you are on the road. That makes sense to me and it should be easier to manage when you are stationary.

Maybe if theres an audio speaker output on the stereo, you can connect some bluetooth or wireless speakers outside. Just a thought.

I don't know why they didn't have the speakers hooked up to the outdoor entertainment system?? There is the TV, and radio/CD/DVD player that could use a better sound system. The way it's wired now, you have to play the Nav radio on the dash with sound filling the MH too!
You know, that outdoor speaker wiring is under sofa at the sub-woofer and the rear access to the outdoor TV entertainment center is 6" away on the wall. Could probably rewire it and add a switch under the TV and next to the radio.

My radio speakers sounded awful but when I learned to use the full coach speakers with bass it helped

May some progress today. I found that the outdoor speaker wires exit the cab via a bundle of wires under the driver's vinyl step and then make a turn to the passenger's side and I lost it. If I can find the wires where they come into the passenger's side before going up, I could cut and tie them off from the radio and attach those going to the speaker switch to the cut off stubs on the back of the outdoor radio.
However, I know that radio is set up for 4- 40 watt speakers of which 2 are on either side of the radio under the outdoor TV. I will eventually have to pull the upper outdoor speaker covers and see what their wattage is. It may be a waste of time. For the moment, I can't play the outdoor speakers without blasting it inside. If I can switch it to the outside radio, I could play the radio or DVD and audio come thru those upper speakers.

Hey Joshua Cavitt, can you check and see what the watts are on the outdoor upper speakers??? Thanks!

We have a Sunseeker 2700DS and the outside speakers only work off of the dash radio.

Yes I know and I'm going to find a way to make them work off the outdoor entertainment center radio/cd/dvd player and maybe the TV too.

Really! As I have mentioned before, my upper outdoor speakers work only off the dash radio with a switch on the upper cabinet by the entry. No way to limit volume in the MH while playing outside speakers. So to hear anything outside the inside volume has to be LOUD!
