Need advice on 2008, 23' International stereo system

We just purchased a used 23' 2008 International CCD. I'm trying to figure its systems out. No problem except for the stereo. I can't get the rear speakers to work & the subwoofer seems to respond to the left rear speaker inputs. It does not respond to the subwoofer inputs. Anyone have suggestions on were to find basic operating instruction? I have read the manuals that were included, but no help for our problem. I removed the panel that hides the stereo wiring & became too intimidated to pull any wires out. Closest Airstream dealer is 100 miles away & I have a feeling they wouldn't be that helpful since we didn't purchase it from them & it is off warranty.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey Scout1,

I purchased a 2008 Bambi new off the lot in 2009. On my first trip I found that the stereo system was not working as expected. I decided to dig into it my self as I was a longway from the dealer. I found a little black box that is hidden in all the wires behind the stereo, and believe me the wires behind the stereo are very scary. I was able to identify the box with its model number and down load its manual, I can not remember the specifics now but I unplugged every thing from the radio, mixing box, CD changer, and tv. I labeled all the wires, then using the downloaded manual, I reconected every thing and organized the wires. I also found that the mixing box has a USB input, so I was able to plug in a USB cord, and run it over next to the CD changer. Now I can plug my laptop into the Stereo and use the Airstreams Speakers for my laptop's sound system. Now the Stereo works very well.

Who ever does the install at the factory needs to be sent to some kind of training, because the stereo system is the only system in my Airstream that has caused me any trouble, not from the equipment, just from the install.
