Replaced stereo in our TT (now it is done)
#1
OK, stock travel trailer stereos suck. I took out the analog stereo/cd player because it was a piece of $hit (skipped every time you took a step in the TT etc ). It was 25 watt 2 channel / 4 speaker piece of crap. I replaced it with a Pioneer 50w 4 channel stereo and put in 4 Pioneer speakers. Not only that but I bought another XM system and installed that too. I love it.

OEM stereo

Sounds good to me!






Now I need to get my router out and get a piece of oak and make a door for CD/DVD storage where the OEM stereo used to be.

That sounds great!

As you commented finish off the wood work and your all set.

Good job!

Looks good, but I thought you replaced that TV with the one from the MAN room?

What is the switch for?

That little rocker switch cuts the always on power for memory in the stereo. Even though my batteries are always charged by the solar panels I dont want the unneccesary draw on them so the switch cuts the power.

I hope you aren't one of those people that programs all your memory locations then. It would be a pain to do that every time you use the TT.

I wouldn't mind hearing more about the solar panel thing though. Might be able to hook something up for wifey's mustang so it always has juice.

Google it. There are systems out there that plug into your cig lighter and the panel sits on the dash for around $80.

OK done with this mod now...

Ok, here is the finished TT mod. Bought a piece of 1x10 red oak and cut it to 8 ¾ x 8 ¾ then used my router to give it a decorative edge. The edge does no match the OEM cabinets and neither does the stain. I tried to get the color as close as possible and this is as good as I got.

Done

Put some ½ MDF to frame the stereo and storage cabinet note it fits dvd's behind and cd'd in front….Or whatever else I want to put in there.

DVD's & CD's

So $250 some odd bucks later and I have a nice sound system that does not skip the cd's when you walk in the TT and I have XM. Nice…..

Gonna be at the lake camping in 2 weeks, cant wait!
