Another stereo speaker question......
We own a 2001 27 foot Bunk House Sierra TT. When we purchased the trailer the factory stereo was missing, leaving just a cubby hole where it would have been. The wiring was intact, just no stereo. Well, this weekend I located an extra car stereo I had laying around and decided to install it in the trailer where the stereo used to be.
Two things that seemed odd after completing the power wiring for the stereo:
1. When I plugged in the stereo to its harness that I had just spliced into the power connections for the factory stereo, all the 12V lighting for the trailer got brighter. When I unplugged the stereo, all the lights got dimmer.
2. I can't seem to get any of the speakers to work. It doesn't matter which connections on the stereo I use, or which speaker I try to test for sound, nothing happens.
My next step is to remove one of the speakers from the ceiling and check for good continuity end to end with a multimeter. Is there anything that I should look for or watch out for? The original stereo system wasn't some kind of self amplified speaker system, was it?
Thanks in advance.
