I've never installed them but here is a link to Part 1 of a 2 part video by "Love Your RV" on how he installed them on a Keystone Cougar.

On my Dutchmen Voltage forum there are numerous posts about them. All positive. Couple hour self installation. Apparently not too difficult. Everyone installs them for your reason or because of cable failures.

I found 4 actuators for the oem valves on ebay. All 4 came to $130, also ordered a controller with keyfob that will control all 4 indipenently. Hopefully get to do a bench test this weekend if it comes in and then install it. Pics and write up to follow.

Our valves are accessible but they pull to the side instead out to the front. This makes it very awkward and hard to own and close them. Anyone change the direction of the pull handles?
