O....but then Santa brought me a killer Bluetooth setup that sounds way better than the crummy stock speakers ever did. So I'll probably just leave them as they are.


Same here. I didn't bother adding outside speakers when I re-did the truck camper for the same reason. Back when I did the TT in 2009 BT speakers weren't nearly as good!

My outdoor speakers are marine type, sound good, and are mounted in the lower J-panel. They are sealed well to the J-panel, but wouldn't matter, as there is no place to leak, just open air behind panel. It would be very easy to change them, if needed. It just makes no sense to me, to cut holes in the wall for outdoor speakers, that can leak, or need replacement.

I wish mine were located down where I sit and with nothing behind them. Great idea though and I have seen a couple of trailers like that. Much better design.

I tried to delete the outdoor junk speakers when I ordered my TH and they wouldn't do it. I just wanted a couple of jacks mounted to the outside to plug good quality speaker into at the campsite.

Second problem is good marine speakers are way deeper then the walls allow. Was forced to replace with same low quality speakers when the cone rotted out of the previous ones.

Our old Warrior just had a couple of speaker wires dangling from the belly. That was actually a great solution. I added some good RCA plugs inside a set of weatherproof boxes and connected some great speakers.

I thought of putting in a couple of led scare lights in the speaker holes and running the wire under the trailer with jacks for the speakers.

The covers on the speakers are slotted, and rear of speakers are open in the back, so to answer your question, they likely get a little wet when towing in a heavy rain. I have camped in wind swept downpours, many times too, and washed the speaker covers with a soapy car wash brush. I rinse off with a hose, avoiding high direct pressure, and never have harmed the speakers, or what I consider good quality sound.
