On my A122, you can pretty much fit any smaller car stereo. The issue will be antenna location and cabling from antenna to stereo. The antenna will have to have a clear view of the satellite - no trees in the way.

big vic, right again.
hopefully forest river has a fix in mind. i'll buy an external speaker if i have to, but imho this is a workmanship defect that should be covered under warranty. end user shouldn't have to rewire their stereo to achieve normal operation. it's reasonable to expect stereo operation both inside and outside the unit. at the very least they should cover the dealer's cost to rewire the stereo for proper sound. hopefully forest river will step up here. happy camping!

I use a portable satellite radio in my camper. Just use the aux jax plug in and tune radio to match for Satellite radio. Later RJD

would really love to see forest river step up here. i bought my unit last month, but haven't taken delivery yet, waiting on dealer for awning install and this stereo warranty fix. it's an easy modification, but the techs all say i shouldn't attempt them myself for warranty purposes.

cheers

I'm reading this dumbfounded. The same as when I found the addendum from FR indicating that balance and not fade is the way one is supposed to shift between indoors and out. This appears to be common on other FR products! What's going on, this seems stupid?

Can anyone tell me how the outdoor speaker terminals are configured? + and - or is there dual inputs?

Took first trip with A122TH and for the most part it's quite nice. Through this excellent forum I learned what kind of quality workmanship you can expect so this has helped with expectations. Wiring and plumbing is **** but I can tidy to my liking.

all the speakers are individually wired with their own positive and negative wires. the schematic is in the radio manual that was included with your owners manuals. Pop out the four screws holing the radio plate to the cabinet, and it will slide right out. repairs can be made quickly and easily. Took me all of 15 min with shrink seal connectors.

If you have an A frame this is the way most work. I never really use it.
