Radio Inside speakers

I have a 2013 cedar creek 36ckts bought it July of this year, The radio works with the out side speakers but can not find inside speakers?
I bought this from a dealer, who removed the sound bar before we picked it up and still waiting for a replacement, does the radio use the sound bar as the speakers, dealer is no help.

Welcome to the Forum!

My 2014 Cedar Creek may have a different audio/sound system since I don't have a sound bar. But my audio receiver has an A/B/C switch to control where the sound goes. A sends the sound to the inside speakers, B sends the sound to the outside speakers. As far as I can tell, C sends the sound to outer space since it doesn't do anything in the RV... Make sure it's not something like that on your audio system. It's probably the fault of the missing sound bar like you said.

We have 4 four speakers mounted on our roof instead of a sound bar.

good luck!

My Rockwood 5ver has A-B-C speaker selection.

A is the "living room" which uses the 5 speakers for the 5:1 surround sound.
B is the bed room, using 2 speakers in the ceiling.
C would have been outside if we had ordered that option.

Wonder if something got disconnected during removal of the sound bar?

On my radio, yes, the radio uses the sound bar, and the FADE control adjusts the inside/outside speakers.

The 38FL is the same - uses a sound bar for inside speakers. This will be "fixed" later this year with some type of regular speaker. We boondock and the sound bar only operates on 110 AC so the new speakers (yet to be determined type and brand) will not require power to operate.

Besides the sound bar that came with the rig honestly is a POS.

But wait...there's more...

Do yourself a favor: Don't wait for the sound bar., RUN, to the nearest Wally World and get a REAL sound system. You'll love to hate the sound far the most impressive piece of trash that FR ever installed in a rather expensive RV! -Based on experience...not opinion...well maybe that too. LOL
PS. I pulled the auto radio and was able to find a pretty nice Phillips surround sound package at WW that fit in the place of the auto radio (with "wall" knocked out of course)...and wired the living area with real 5.1 surround. Not a Bose system by any stretch but sooo much nicer than the 2.1 sound bar junk. By selling the bar and radio...and DVD I about paid for the replacement Phillips Amp/DVD.

I have the A-B-C set up also. A is inside, C is outside and B must be for the dogs since no one can hear it.
