    Not much wiring in outside walls, all wiring is from inside out. The walls are built off unit then assembled. A few wires get punched thru from inside for your lights or speakers, but no wires that I am aware run thru walls.
    I just screwed my mounts to the inside wall, yes it is thin but no issues. I figured if they pull out I will fix it somehow and make something work. However I have pulled this 5th to California twice and several trips other places, about 40,000 towed miles so far. Had towels hanging on those hooks while moving and they are as tight as the day I installed them.

    yes, the front compartment will not open when hooked up. Hits the tail gate

    That is my idea as well to relocate to the pass through, it will be an easier fix as there is not much wiring to work with, I feel I can do that without adding more wire.

    Don - most auto parts stores carry battery cables of various lengths that are terminated with large lugs. Drill a 1" hole above or below where you want to mount the switch, then pull a string, rope or whatever from the new switch location to inside the bay where it needs to connect. Mark it and measure for length. Then go shopping. Or order via Amazon - link to one seller.

    most all race cars have a remote battery cut off- there are many kits with all needed items- check jegs or summit -would be easy to use one that would have the handle easily reachable in propane bay that you would push or pull to cut power - or there are kits that use heavy relay that you could operate from switch in trailer or even with remote
