376BHOK outside speakers

I was wonder if any one had thought about running speaker wires from the outside speakers back the outside kitchen to mount a speaker underneath the cabins over the sink? I like having some tunes while I'm outside cookin but I dont wanna cranking it up too loud to hear it around the slide.

My trailer is on order and I just tried to call today to add the speaker in the outdoor kitchen. The salesman told me they factory was to far along to add the speaker. So I guess I will do it my self. Where are the speakers located anyway? The salesman told me there was a total of six outside.

I want to do the same as well on our 376bhok, not sure where to get the access to the speakers though? There are only 2 speakers on the outside, 2 in the front bedroom, and 2 in the main living/kitchen area.

We just bought a bluetooth speaker for the outside, which i use while grilling and then also around the campfire at night. I noticed depending on where your campfire it and the 2 outside speakers, you may not hear it if the fire is towards the back of the camper. bluetooth speaker is great, and i just stream music from my phone.

Goofy thing on the 376 bhok - if your underneath storage doors are open, they cover the speakers. Sandpiper needs to raise the speakers and add some to the back outside kitchen.

I can reach the wires from the speakers through the propane compartment, and running the wires along the under carriage wouldnt seem hard. My question would be how to run the wires up to the outside kitchen?

I always wondered what the longivity of those outdoor speakers would be. Knowing for a fact they're not high quality, what happens after being in the sun for years? So in our case, there's 2 - 5" holes in the side of the fifth wheel, with not much keeping water out of the wall. Just curious. I wish they weren't there. I'd rather them be mounted Inside the outdoor kitchen, or in the basement where they were out of the elements. Or better yet, just to NOT have more holes in the walls for potential leaks.

I thought of 2 options, bring them up behind the fridge, probably need to drill a hole through the countertop along the wall edge, not too big since it is one speaker wire and then run it into the cabinet with another drill hole and mount it in their.

The other option I thought of was to go through the bunk room closet and then out to the kitchen. You will need to take that bottom black cover off the undercarriage too to gain that access. You will have to seal it all back up once the project is completed.

After thinking of all of that, the $60 bluetooth speaker I bought seemed like a better option.

Probably will just have to buy replacements for them, some of the top manufactures make pretty top quality stuff for outside.

Yea the blue tooth speaker sounds a little easier. Today I cut a half inch piece of plywood to raise up the outside fridge up, the door would hit the lip of the compartment and wouldnt open all the way. I unscrewed the legs as far a I could and it still hit. And I also mounted a paper towel holder on the back wall. Just taking care of little odd stuff, we leave Monday morning headed up to Gatlinburg for the week.
