Trailer: 2008 21 ft Bigfoot
Posts: 41
We just picked up our new 2008 Bigfoot from Gibbs RV in Oregon. We took a chance on one of the ebay auctions and got a good deal. We were always dreaming about a Bigfoot but could never afford it, so we figured that we better grab one of the last ones before it was too late. We were a little worried about buying sight unseen, but were pleasantly surprised. The only problem with this rig so far is one of the GFI plugs appears to need replacing because the electric outlets on one side of the trailer don't work. Also, we can't figure out how to turn off the outside stereo speakers. We figured out how to work the balance control between "left" and "right", but that just controls the front and back speakers on both the inside and outside of the camper. Anybody have any ideas how to turn off the ouside speakers? We had fun picking up the trailer in Oregon and sight seeing on the way back to Kansas City. The photo was taken at Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area in Wyoming.

there should be a switch on the front of the stereo that says "Front/Rear" of "A/B" or possibly "Main" and extension.

Look for a "Two choice" option..

if you can't find one:

1. Post a pic of the front of the stereo so I can see..

I don't think anyone is silly enough to parallel the two sets, but.. I have seen a lot of dumb audio tricks in my life. If thats what happened, disconnecting the second set is the only way, but post a pic first.. it should be as simple as a switch or pot.

If it is a car stereo of some type try to find the Front/Rear fader control.
Maybe one set is on the front and the other the rear?
Nowadays you have to go into Menus to adjust any of this kind of thing.
Likely if there is a menu button it will cycle you through the normal adjustments till you get to the fader.

Or like Gina said if you post a picture we can post back 1000 words....give or take a few.

Check all your outlets for a GFI reset.

And also check for a GFI circuit breaker.

I had a boat that one GFI outlet tripped and shut down all the outlets on one side of the boat.

If you have an automotive type of stereo some models have a push/pull feature. Push the button in to controll side to side and pull the button out to controll front to back, etc.

You probably have a Linear Series stereo made by Magnadyne. If it's anything like mine it has an A/B switch on the front panel as Gina D describes. Here's a link to the manufacturer where you can find the Owner's Manual online.

It turns out it was the fader control that worked in turning off the oustide speakers. Thanks for that info. I would never have figured that out. It is a Kenwood stereo, one of the kind that have the removeable faceplate to prevent theft. I wish we still had the simple radios that just have an "on/off" button and simple manual controls that you don't need a degree in electrical engineering or at least a free day to read the thick manual that comes with it to figure it out. Of course, this appears to be a car radio so the manual didn't say anything about "outside speakers." And it did have an electronic style menu to get to the fader control.
