Wink Panel Behind Radio Remove

Well I just wanted to check out the connectors etc for my original radio before replacing it and of course a 5 minute job will probably take a lot longer. I could only pull the radio out about half way and it seems that the various wires and connectors are creating some kind of jam. My question, is there an easy way to remove the panel behind the radio OR would I better better off just buying a brand new trailer!

Back of Radio

Not sure what the back of your radio looks like but mine looks like this: All those wires plug into various connectors on the radio.

I removed the DVD and interior of the cabinet to get this picture. There may be enough slack in the wires to pull the radio all the way out.

If not I would go in through the interior side to help it along.

Wire and cable management is not an Airstream strong point.

Our 2013 25FB Flying Cloud is like what Jim described. Open the cabinet next to the radio, unscrew the screws on the cover plate and shelf for the DVD/BluRay and remove that stuff. Then you can unscrew the side panel to get at the back of the radio.

I've taken the whole thing apart and I don't recommend it. If Jim J's suggestion provides the access you need use it.

Here is my story:

The new trailer sounds way easier and more fun but might cost an extra dollar or two.
