What are the electrical code standards for a mobile/manufactured home?
Saturday, February 9, 2019
Manufactured homes must comply with Subpart I of 24 CFR Part 3280 (HUD-code) and Part II of Article 550 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), which has specific standards for manufactured homes, with following qualifiers:
- HUD follows the 2005 edition of the NEC, not the current one [3280.801(a)].
- Where there is a difference in the standards of the two codes, the HUD-code standards should be used [3280.801(b)].
See our blog post What is the difference between the electric service to a mobile home and a site built home? Also, go to our HUD-CODE FOR MOBILE HOMES page for a listing of our other HUD-code articles.
