Hi: Thanks for coming to Just Answer with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX perhaps I can assist you with this. This problem is usually caused by a loose connection on the speaker feeds coming into the speaker or a broken wire on the speaker itself either on the cone or inside the coil. If you have checked all the leads and the wires are tight in the connectors and those are snug then this is probably a bad speaker and will need to be replaced. They aren't that expensive as a rule. Please get back to me if you need more help with this or a wiring diagram. R.J.

Checked for wiring problems and replaced speakers. Both old and new speakers do the same, tap on speaker and it plays along with other door. Yesterday after changing speakers in both doors, tapped on and had playing, then went into coach and tapped on one of the two coach speakers and they played.

Then you need to go farther up the line with the search for a loose or broken connection. The vibration from the tapping is carrying up the wire. Look at the connection at the door or on either side. It also may be a broken wire in the door jamb area from the constant flexing of the wiring. You may have to run some new leads from the door to a spot out of "harm's way" inside. Intermittent problem of this sort are sometimes the hardest to find. Get me a Winnebago model number for this coach and I can get you a wiring diagram. R.J.
