Ditto...On a standard car radio like this you FADE between front and back pairs of speakers (no matter where the 4 speakers are actually located).
Find the fader control by going into menu...then setup...then sound...then fader. Major pain to have to go through this every time. I would suggest adding a simple disconnect switch to your outside speakers.

I'm really thinking about swapping out the radio as well. It's way too complicated for the # of times we use it. We also dry camp a bunch and having pull the fuse (to save on the batter) and then reprogram each time will not be fun.

On my XLR
The outside speakers are turned on/off via a separate rocker switch mounted in on the ceiling next to the radio.
My radio is in the garage area.

As far as the antenna is concerned, if you have a round thingie that looks a bit like a flying saucer on your roof, that is the antenna.

I installed a rocker switch in my 31V like DSQR said was in his XLR. Anytime you remove power from the radio it will go back to the default settiings a real pain. Single pole single throw switch

There is no crank for the antenna it is an onmi-directional unit up on top.

The snow is finally gone ... again and I can see the RV roof. It is indeed the onmi-directional type antenna.

Thanks all.

Check manual, some auto/boat radios have-alive connection that provides power ( uAmps) to the memory/clock to keep it alive while disabling the other radio functions. If equipped, that line and general radio power are usually connected together during install. If you replace it, look for that capability.
