One Outside Speaker not working

Ok, this has me stumped, so I think it maybe a wiring issue.

All of a sudden on my 2013 28footer TT, the jenson system outside speakers were working one day, then all of a sudden, one was not working?

Took the unit out, tested all the wires by putting them into a speaker I had in head and it works. However, when hooking the wires back up, the one will not work. Warranty time?

I would swap the speaker with one that is working. Simple process of elimination. if you get sound from replacement, you have a bad speaker, if no sound, you have a wire issue. IMO if it is the speaker, I wouldnt replace with another Jensen. I would find the specs for size on the speaker and replace with a better quality marine speaker that would fit the enclosure. IMO kicker or kenwood would sound much better.

Similar issue, the outside left side speaker all of a sudden didn't work. Did what you did, took the radio/amp out and lo and behold they hook the speakers up with wire nuts, whut? Anyway undid/redid and the speaker worked again. Not sure but I think there is a better way of doing it.

Better way of doing it of course, but the better way has to be cheaper and faster.

Wait until you get into the guts of the rig and find wire nuts and 3M squeese connectors on wires. There is the chance you may find both styles on the same pair of wires.
