Electrical Wiring Under A Mobile Home

Post by CRAWFORD » Tue Apr 10, 2018 6:54 pm

I know I can probably run my 12/2 electrical wire a short distance under my mobile home
and be OK. However, I don't think it meets code. Any suggestions what I could do?

Thanks

The wiring under the trailer would need to be wet rated. You would need to transition to NMWU or equivalent.

NEC may be more stringent on this. CEC would be the same as any outdoor wiring.

Type UF in the US, since you said you were in NY in your other post.
