Wire is undersized, there's no conduit for the wiring, they usually drop off a roll of 1/2" copper tubing for the water and gas line then provide 20' lengths of ABS for the sewer, which usually come tucked in the frames of the home. It's a hopeless situation most of the time. Again it gets back to the bottom line. Go the cheapest route and once the home is sold they got theirs.

I could post some pics that would blow you away!!
It sounds like you should send a few pictures to the county if that is who has jurisdiction.

A lot of these parks get away with it because they are big time tax money for the county/township.

Park owners my get away with code violations, But I have a feeling that one multimillion dollar law suit will wipe out any money they saved by skirting the codes. And if it could be proved that there were code violations that were ignored the officials should be named as defendants as well.
