Hard to reach valves

We have a 2013 XLR hyperlite. The waste valves are so far under the trailer that I have to lay on the ground to open and close them. Is anybody familiar with cable or electric valve actuators and what would be the best choice in this area?

A lot of people have replaced the waste valves with electric operators and I haven't seen any negative reports from them.
I've seriously considered installing the Barker Auto-Drain valves on our RV.

Thanks, I am ordering the valve actuators you mentioned. they are a little pricey (around a hundred each on e-bay) but better than crawling around where other campers have had leaky sewer hook-ups. I can get by with an extension on the second grey water. Thank you for your reply
