Moving wires in the walls


We have a 2001 Monaco Knight 36ft pusher. The bath is in the mid-back with the sink, counter and shower on the drivers side. This is the side that I want to move the wires. In the bath the light switch, hot water switch and storage tank panel are very low and hard to see / deal with. I want to move them up to eye level before we recover the paper with stick on backsplash. I have tried to drill slowly into the area where I want to move the lines to but keep hitting metal. I do not know what is behind the metal and do not want to go thru it to find out. Has anyone done any moving of wires and run into this issue. I have moved other outlets and run some additional wires where needed with no issues. I have a small camera that connects to my phone that allows me to snake to where I want to go to make sure I am not going to run into any issues but this has always been in the pink insulation thru the first two levels of wall and insulation.

Thanks for any advice.

Viewed from the outside a heavy dew will let you know where the coach metal frame is.

Can you run wires to the basement, instead of the walls?

If you are trying to run wires on an exterior wall I think it will be almost impossible due to the way the walls are constructed. I do not have one signal switch mounted on an exterior wall.

Where exactly are you trying to do this, can you post a picture.

I agree with Jim, the exterior walls are pretty much out.
However, you might be able to use a surface conduit to accomplish what you want.

Well, I can't seem to make the links work, but you get the idea.
