In a mobile home park the service equipment(pedestal)is located on the lot line and in sight from the mobile home.The problems is its 90' away from the home. On a recent inspection nothing was said of this and it passed inspection. How do most inspectors handle this in your area would they make you install an additional disconnect within 30'? Comments ,opinions please. I know that a disconnect should of been installed to meet code. Thanks

The usual way, by attaching a red violation sticker to the meter pedestal. This one doesn't even fall into a grey area.


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

In case you didn't notice, Tom is a pistol expert. He is one inspector not to argue with.
Tom does your red tag have a bullseye on it?

Now for qustion #2 I just found out that a breezeway and garage is going to be built and attached to this mobile home. Would you consider this part of the home and measure your disconnect from the end of the garage?
