comment How do I level a pipe with the ground?
Around here, drain pipes are usually 4" diameter. Sewer pipe is likely to be plugged, as there's nasty stuff in there (duh). Since it doesn't have a cap, I would guess it's a gutter drain.

comment What's the best way to terminate plastic water supply pipe?
I've decided that I'm happy with the valve, because it makes it easier to drain the plumbing completely for winter, or flush the plumbing to sanitize.

I just had an electrician here working on a light fixture. To test it, he stuck his finger in the socket. Didn't flinch.

What do you mean by "dry wall and then plaster on top"? Do you mean there's a layer of plaster on top of a layer of drywall? I've never heard of that, but there's a lot I don't know...

How set are you on having hard-wired connections to all those places? Would you consider wiring between 2 or 3 key locations, and wireless elsewhere?

Avoid putting ethernet right next to power line, as there can be interference - cross at right angles. Also, codes usually don't let them share a conduit or junction box.

Could I have improved my question by making the pictures smaller? They seem to dominate the post. On the other hand, I hate squinting to look at tiny pictures.

comment How should I terminate a black plastic drain pipe?
There's a lot of information I didn't include! This is in a motorhome. The blackwater tank is immediately below the plywood subfloor, so the drain pipe is very short. If I cut it below the floor level, there may not be enough to glue the coupling to. There are no other sources of blackwater, so the tank will just sit empty. I tried to make the question general, and to make it more about conventional construction, and then map the answers back on to the motorhome. I found a properly sized cap which I will probably just let sit loose on the top of the pipe, under the bucket.
