Mobile Home Plumbing Question

Recommended Posts

I can't speak for the Golden State, but up here, we don't expect to see shutoffs under the sinks in a mobile home. Sometimes, people have added them, good idea. I believe in the US they are under the HUD jurisdiction.

If your unit was lacking them, it's a good bet that's the way it left the factory.

They left stuff off for two reasons, to save money and to reduce weight.

I have pics of mobile home toilets with plastic toilet tanks. Lovely.

Here the $90 Nikon Coolpix captures the water drops falling from the leak in the sink. Fascinating stuff. [:)]

Weren't required then. Don't know about now. Go to "library" on the menu bar above, use your cursor to make the sub-menu appear and then click on "File Downloads." Scroll down until you find The HUD Code - MHCSS (Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards at 24 CFR 3280). Check out the section of water distribution systems.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Only requirement is main shut-off in the home or, under the home. Most manufacturers today are installing individual fixture valves and whole-house valves within the living space.

Since you are mentioning the water heater supplies I assume the plumbing you refer to are the water pipes. We have a slew of mobile home factories in our area of Florida and back in the 70's I used to work for them installing the plumbing so I'm familiar with their construction...
