Honestly most mobile homes I have been under just have cables and conduits run wildly on the ground with no means of support whatsoever.

DITTO !

So long as it's not dangerous,
If you do what the customer wants
At a price the customer can afford
Then you have a happy customer
Which can lead to more customers !

Best practice is good if the customer can afford it ?
But some cannot !

I think I would use tie wire in a case like this.

this was a job being inspected and I needed to do it as cheap and fast as possible so theres no way in hell I was using unistrut or trapezes

this was a down and dirty job that apparently passed inspection the way it is because I never heard from the homeowner otherwise

Minis and beam clamps like others have mentioned or down to the slab with two hole pvc clips. They aren't my cup of tea, but have to make the low crawl every now and then. Last one was for a dishwasher and I'm sure the homeowner wished they had it installed when it was being built by the time the plumber and I handed over the bills.

in case no one has noticed or has ever worked on a mobile home, minis are what I had planned on using, but it's very hard to do when the beams are a foot or more away from where you need to run the pipe and the spans are too far apart without running strut or a trapeze

In my former stomping grounds.,, ya LNFC is common because it easy to pass the inspection on that. and it quicker that way too.

in this case pipe was easier besides the securing of it

the homeowner wanted the wiring in conduit from the shed to the house so why not continue it another 15' - 20' instead of switching over to another method?

I just figured if you used something flexible you could run it somewhere that was easy to support it.

I could have used a 90 down the cinderblock foundation wall and then 90 back to the beam and used minis, then 90 back to the LB but nah
