    That is awesome... insta-marilyn monroe-dress thing going on there. Do they lay wood down over it when you're not there? and how's the access to the condensing unit down below?

    That wiring is giving me a headache. Why am I not seeing the power coming in? Or the condenser is not yet tied in?

    What you don't see is the clothes line above. That's why the basket of wet clothes is there. When the A/C is on it blows hot air on the clothes and you don't have to goto the laundry mat.

    You should always look for the oppotunity to "Up Sell"

    damn. I'm surprised they haven't figured a way to put a box on top of that for their tumble-dries...

    that service disconnect then is just a junction? the wires are just by-passing the breaker?

    I do a few new mobile home unit installs and the electrician ( aka homeowner) wires the disconnect box for the condenser. That is what I found when I went to wire it in.

    No wood over fan. Went to a heater call and saw that as I went up the steps. Only access is to crawl under porch.
