Hi Tom I'm not sure if you got this straightened out but there's nothing wrong with the radio it's actually a feature of the IRV34.
My new trailer came with that radio and I had the same problem. The outside speakers were full blast and I couldn't turn them down. I found out that the outside speakers zone three Can be controlled separately from the inside speakers.
What you have to do is turn on zone three and then press the zone three button for one second and then the volume knob will control the volume of the outside speakers. Then to control the volume of the inside speakers again just press zone one or two for one second and then the volume knob will control the inside speakers.
It's actually a pretty cool feature. Another nice thing they added to this model is split zone mode. That means that you can listen to one source inside and another source outside. For example, someone can be listening to TV inside while you can have the radio playing on the outside speakers.
If I remember correctly to activate that split mode you press and hold the outside speaker button for more than three seconds and then select the mode you want to listen to outside.
I think after the complaints they had about the outside speakers volume being either too low or too high compared to inside they added that new ability to control the outside speakers separately from the inside. It's a pretty cool feature!
