Washed and waxed. Found that I could get Eagle One Wax As-U-Dry from Car Brite in gallons. Placed in an insect sprayer and with a microfiber mop from Lowes, waxed it in less than 30 minutes.

You mean you spray washed it....or spray shined it...thats not waxing! Spray stuff doesn't hold up like wax does...remember "easy on easy off" doesn't always mean it will last any more than a couple rainfalls. Takes me 3 days to "wax" the beast!

Actually Wax As-U-Dry is a carnauba based wax and does hold up well considering the minimal effort. It will last 30 - 60 days. Its easy enough to do every time. The old philosophy of paste wax and working hard is a lot of wasted energy. 99% of the paste applied is buffed off leaving behind a layer of carnauba not much unlike a simple spray wax.

....with the added plus of really trying to pay close attention to the details of my rig.....if I wanted a quick wash and wax, I would pay the money and take it to an RV wash.

Our tv mount pushes down into the cabinet when the tv is not being used. The top of the mount matches the countertop and the DW mentioned it started to rub against the opening in the countertop. I got around to checking on it today and found that the mount has pulled away from the wall. I'm no design engineer, but I at least have enough common sense to know that two #8 sized screws will not hold much when screwed into 1/4 inch plywood. There is no backing behind the sidewall and the mount pulled the screws out of the plywood. Now I have see if nylon mollys will be sufficient to hold it, especially if I use more than two screws.

Finally getting back to your request.
You'll see in the pics, before adding the adapter, I had disassembled and flipped the valve around so the cable would go under the coach. Then I made a simple cable mount bracket.
You can find the valve adapter and cable separately or as a kit at Amazon.com or most r/v parts suppliers. Search for Valtera cable valve.
