The biggest one the location of the pipes, the size of the pipes, and how simplified the system can be due to HUD code.

2. Identify Supply Lines

Just like a traditional home, mobile homes use supply lines. They feed water into the home. Mobile homes also use wastewater lines as a traditional home does. It is important for you to know the location of both types of lines. Mobile homes tend to have the supply lines run under the home. They can be in the middle alongside the heating ducts or located on the side. It all depends on the location of your water heater and home’s layout.

3. Cut Off Valves

In addition, mobile homes also use cut off valves just like traditional homes. They can usually be located near the plumbing fixture including toilet, sink, et. In general, there may also be a whole home cut off valve near the supply lines. These are essential if you have to repair or replace any item in your mobile home’s plumbing system. You may also have to cut off the main valve off if there is excessive pressure in your lines.
