Also, you should already have a hole or two in your firewall.

I found this one "wide open" left by the FR allstars, no silicone, plumber's putty just an invitation for critters to enter your coach.

I ran the Harness through a KO with Spiral Wrap and taped it up well and added some Silicone around the hole.

Since your adding a USB in the Dash you might as well ad one by the entry.
I removed the Mobile Hm type box and used a cut-in box for this outlet.

I never like to see rough wiring holes so I went out on the line to find out what in the world is going on because by rule, we try NOT to go through the firewall. We do offer a brake controller now from the factory...but they run those wires in a different location. On further review, those (2) wires you show are for the park brake sensor.

This is where I found them on the unit I say today. (from the air line and then though the firewall).

I just used the knock out by the air lines, worked great and I didn't see any other rough holes in the area. I'll check the wiring with a meter this week to get the wiring finished.

As you can see clearly bclemens, they didn't bother to put anything around the PB sensor wiring. How long would that last with all the chafing going on down the road.
You guy's really need to have better Qa & Qc in your plant. I'd be handing out final checks to a few and sending them down the road.
Here's another one, why use 3/8" wafer head screws for installing the Window coverings, I had (3) Blind assembly's fall down while driving down the HWY, Really ?
There's more, but I really don't want to waste my time typing a few paragraphs.

That's why I posted...I did not like the looks of that so we spot checked what was on the line. It looks like maybe we caught it already on an inspection and they are installing them correctly now.

Aug 1st is my 1 year anniversary to taking over...so unfortunately some of this was built before my time or when I first started. But, we've added some inspection points and changed some personnel around.

As for the valance, during a vendor change I guess we had screws popping up through the top so they changed to a smaller screw. When what should have happened (and what has happened now) is that the top material got thicker. that has also been rectified.
