    There’s definitely some mercenary’s in this trade, how many offices would have sold a Service Agreement sight unseen? Maintaining junk is more profitable then replacement at least that was what I was told in Collage. Price appropriately! Before they give you the shopping list. And ALWAYS CYCLE the unit (a hard lesson learned) yes I understand it doesn’t work correctly, or at all. Xzibit of HVAC, I call it PIMP MY EQUIPMENT. Not any suggestions just what I think when I get calls like that.

    Although it's difficult to say from this angle, but I'm guessing that the condenser coil is on the top and both sides of the A/C. Unless you were worried about payment, that call wouldn't have been that bad. As we know, spit systems ain't rocket science. And like other's said, it could have been a simple fix. Or at the very least, if these cat's could afford it... a new Split system. Problem solved.

    it looks like its been like that for many years and worked alright, I have to agree that i would of serviced it too. When i saw the post i thought you were going to show the unit next to a powerline or something else that dangerous.

    There is a big difference in manufacturer homes and modular homes. Modulars have to meet all local codes just as stick built homes do. They are of superior build quality, and they can be two and three story buildings. Manufactured (single, double, and triple wides) only need to meet HUD code, and are built will far less quality than a modular home. Modular homes were at the top of the list, just behind masonry, for homes that can survive heavy hurricane damage. Sorry, pet peeve of mine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_home

    I would have serviced it, then put my company sticker on it. Eventually the cow will produce milk, and you have another customer. I've seen some wierd sh*t too, but dig in and get your hands dirty man! Sometimes our job can be "not so glorious", in that event just re-adjust your nutsak, shrug your shoulders and get some!

    I've repaired 'em, changed 'em out (with a hi static fan) and now I'm inspired. I'm gonna check code on setting the rest i chanege out on the tongue. Owner will save money when they pull that baby down the road and set it up somewhere else.

    Don't know why not it would be against code. There are several CUs hanging off stick built houses. Instead of a pad they mount a rack to the house.
    Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet.

    wrong term benny its Manufactured home.
    it was a new term made when codes came to the bulding world in 85.
    what used to be called a trailer aka mobile home is now a winnabago.
