Unhappy Questions

So we own a 2023 Astoria 3553, our outside speakers quit working(inside works fine) husband removed 1 of outside speakers & now the awning lights do not work. He reconnected & still nothing on both. Any ideas why? Appreciate any help.

For a 2023, it most likely loose wiring connectors. Speaker and lights are totally separate issues. Both due to sloppy assembly.

Return to dealer for warranty claim. Keystone will probably reject the claim and blame you.

Hope you used butyl tape when you put the speaker back in…

The sound outside is probably due to operator error on the stereo itself. They can be confusing to operate at times. I have a Rockford stereo in my unit and the same volume control operates inside and outside but you have to push this then push that to get the outside speakers to work. Good luck with the factory folks. Check your fuse panel, the outside lamps will be on the 12 volt side.

Thx, not operator error. Not our first camper & have changed outside speakers before. Tend to agree may be sloppy assembly. Not to mention horrible road conditions.
