Doublewide Mobile Home wiring
Was tracing down a short to ground in a doublewide today, and noticed that all of the recepatacles were wired from the ceiling instead of around the perimeter of the room like you see in stick built houses. I haven't worked on the wiring of mobile homes, and I know they pretty much do their own thing at the manufacturer, but I am wondering if there are some in general types of things that are common on mobile home wiring. Also, being these are factory built, do they tipically have a copy of the electrical plan available at the manufacturer?
Also, when changing out a bad switch, etc, and a like kind of the crap switches they make isn't available, is it ok for us to install an old work box, etc. per the NEC, or do we have to go by the mobile home section in the code?
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing!
