Speakers for stereo

We have a 2007 Sunseeker 3100 with a satellite radio in the dash. The radio seems to run through the speakers in the coach. Can I play the radio while the coach is parked in a site with electricity hookup without drawing down the chassis battery? If so how is it done? Is it possible to also run the TV through the same speakers?

We have a 2010 and I don't think the way we are wired that we can do what you want without drawing the start battery.

1. The dash radio up until the 2012 models was run off the chassis battery, but if you're plugged in, it shouldn't matter much. You could run a wire from the coach batteries to the dash radio to use coach power instead.
2. To run sound from the TV through the speakers, you would have to have "audio out" on your TV, which I don't think the 2007's did.

Thank you for that insight. I just decided to plug the satellite radio receiver into one of the 12v plugins in the coach to get the power. What i would still like to do is run that receiver through the speakers in the coach, but i cant figure out where the wires are to connect to it? Any suggestions?

The speakers in the ceiling will tie into the ford harness that goes into the radio.

The speakers are wired into the dash radio. The Ford harness is the wiring coming from the van body (wired into the radio). That is, unless you have an entertainment center with surround sound...then they get wired to the wall mount radio/dvd.

We have a 2012 on order. So do I take it that on the 2012 the radio runs off the coach battery?

It really depends on when it was ordered and when it is being built. This has been a running change as we are testing out a new radio.

It is scheduled to be built in about two weeks according to RvDirect.com.
