outside speakers stopped working

I have no literature on the "entertainment center". It only says "Linear Series" on the face plate so I don't know who mfg'd it. No obvious way to remove it from the front side (no screws, bolts, etc.). When I look inside the cabinet immediately below it the unit is completely "boxed in", so no way to remove it from the back/beneath side either.

"A" and "B" speakers work. "C" / outside speakers don't work.

All hints/help appreciated.

Pry the bezel off and it will expose 4 screws. Remove them and you can slide the unit out.

I doubt that there is any user serviceable parts, if it worked before it's probably the C channel output that gone bad.

I had the same unit and it crapped out within a year, I would have to let it warm up on channel "C" for 40 minutes before any sound came out. Got the unit replaced under warranty.

Thanks very much... Now I know how to access the wiring, I can switch speaker/wires to determine if the problem is the outside speakers, or the "entertainment center".

Not to sound harsh, but we've parked next to several rvers that it would've been a blessing if their outside speakers would quit working along with their outside tvs. If I could've had remote to mute them I would've used it.

You can't just swap connectors if I recall correctly, you'll have to cut the wires to swap them.

I had the same issue, the head unit went bad and they replaced it with an upgraded model under warranty

That's what headphones are for!

THIS^^^^^^!!!!!!. Why would anyone want to force everyone in nearby campsites (and in some cases campsites all over the 640 acre park) to listen to "their" brand/flavor of music? - or, worse yet, their favorite wacko political commentator on talk radio?
I find it curious - the same folks that would turn you in to the camp police for loud kids or barking dogs will sit outside and pollute the entire camp with "music".
Take it inside or wear headphones!!
Okay - rant off

Outside speakers and/or TVs blasting are not my kind of camping fun. Have at it but don't be surprised or upset if the CG manager gives you a visit with a request to dampen the noise if it gets out of hand.

What a users group. I ask for suggestions on trouble shooting outdoor speaker problems... I get 3-4 helpful responses, and I get 3-4 rude, controlling, liberal responses telling me how I should live my life. To you 3-4 d/a's. You DONT KNOW ME ! ! I am the LAST PERSON who would violate somebody else's right to peace and quiet. Now GO POUND SAND !

To the 3-4 of you had helpful response - THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I WONT BE BACK to THIS FORUM.
