non working stereo speaker

We recently purchased a 2000 30' Storm. On our first trip we discovered the stereo speaker above the passenger seat didn't work. We changed out both speakers and have discovered an 'open circuit' between the indash unit and the speaker. Any words of wisdom on how the wiring gets from point 'A' to point 'B'? Any advice would be welcome.

I would pull the dash stereo out and start there; making certain that there are good connections and that the stereo was putting out a signal for that speaker.

Make sure the "balance" and "fade" settings are right. That speaker just might be turned off or tuned out.

Thanks for the help

Good advice, however, I did begin at the stereo by removing from the dash and checking connections and output. Also prior to removal I checked on the programing, fader, balance, etc. All ok. There is definately an open in the wiring between the stereo and the speaker above the front passenger. Does anyone know the route the speaker wire takes to get from the stereo to the speaker on a 2000 30' Storm?

Through dash up windshield pillar post into cabinet and then through roof/ceiling to speaker location. Should take an hour to run new line.

Maybe even less. Ran my line from the TV to the stereo (same route, from the overhead to the dash) in about 25 minutes.

You could even use the old wire as a fish. Attach your new speaker wire to the end of the old, and pull it through.

Good Luck,
Bill
