Oh yeah, I moving the home to a new location and have already sprayed everything with roundup to ensure it is dead when it gets to my place. I just wondered if the ivy had messed the unit up.

Repo mobile home---air conditioner covered in ivy..

I just purchased a mobile home that was repoed. The air conditioner unit is almost completely covered in ivy. Will the roots of the ivy ruin the unit?

Thanks in advance!

Plastic under mobile home?

Do you put plastic under your mobile homes for a vapor barrier? I live in central NC and I am in the process of moving a mobile home. Also, can you put it down and let the mover drive over it or will they just tear it to pieces when the set it up? I just thought it might be easier to install since y...

I just paid $630 for materials and labor for a 28x52 doublewide. However, I think I could have gotten it done cheaper. Just becareful on the material. Some of the cheap vinyl material is pointless to even put up because it is so thin and brital.

Unless you have a method of curing the conventional flue curred tobacco (ie tobacco barn), you will need to plant burely tobacco. Burely tobacco can be hung on a "clothes line" type contraption and will cure on it's own. However, flue cured tobacco is a whole different story. As far as chemicals on ...

Thermal Zones...

I am looking at purchasing a double wide with a thermal zone 1 rating. According to the HUD map, I need a thermal zone 2 since I am located near Greensboro, NC. If I purchase this home, can I make the necessary improvements to get it to a thermal zone 2 rating? What exactly is the difference?

Thanks!

I am pretty certain I found it today. It is in the master bedroom, inbetween the bathroom and the closet. I noticed a dead space when I went back over there today. Thanks for all the suggestion!

Actually, I work for a bank that is pretty conservative. We are in great shape and have not received the first dime from the bailout $.

I'd have to check with the home loan lender in my office to be 100% sure. I'm a commercial loan officer, so I don't handle these types of loans any longer. So much has changed in the last 12 months, I'm afraid I might mislead you. The last thing I heard was we could still go 30 years on NEW manufact...

RE: On-Frame Modular Homes

I am a loan officer at a bank. For the difference in price of an on frame vs. an off-frame modular, get a off-frame modular. However, I have financed homes for Palm Harbor and do not trust them! They will sell unexpecting home owners and on-frame and try to pass it as an off frame. If your lender an...

Location of hot water heater in a 1998 Oakwood double wide

As crazy as this sounds, I can't find the hot water heater in this repoed home I just bought. While I realize the hot water heater was probably stolen out of it, I figured I could at lease find the hook ups for the hot water heater. Any suggestions of where to look or how to find the hook ups? Thanks!
