Genesis stereo not hooked up right

I read this thread yesterday...
Stereo speaker inside stopped working

It got me to look at something that has been bugging me about my new 2014 Shamrock 183 I picked up this past May.

When I play a stereo CD through any or all of the inside speakers, I only get 1 track of the stereo pair. I took out the Genesis stereo in the cabinet using the info I got from the previous thread. I found that only the Right channel was hooked up to the inside A and B speaker. THe A speaker toward the rear bed and the B speaker over the sink were both playing the right channel only. The wire coding is printed on the back of the Genesis unit. Using the color coded wires, I snipped the rear A speaker wires and hooked up the Left channel A speaker wires to the rear speaker. This now gives me Left and Right channels inside the coach at the expense of no B channel, only A.

I wish there was an easy way to fish additional wires over to the rear and under sink speakers. I might be inclined to add a second stereo speaker to form a pair in both those locations. Unless I get some inspiration on fishing those wires from this forum, I suppose I will add a small set of bookshelf speakers under the dinette, near the front bunk and hook those to the B channel wires that are now not hooked to anything.

For the cost of a cheap set of speakers, I cannot for the life of me figure why FR decided to not hook up stereo speakers inside the coach... but I think I know why... save a couple of $$.

I added a couple of nice speakers on the shelf above the bunk. It was not difficult to route the wires to the new speakers.

Bluetooth speakers maybe? No sure if they will work but maybe worth a little more digging.
