Question about aluminum wiring

ed57June 3, 2013

Does anyone know what year Bainbridge mobile homes switched from aluminum to copper wiring?

I'm thinking of buying a 1973, mainly because of nice location, but don't want to even take the time to look at it (its in another state) if its got the old aluminum wiring.

According to the Mobile Home Doctor aluminum wiring was last used in mobile homes in 1971. So the 1973 model ought to have copper wiring.

we tore all ours out and the paneling and insulation and up graded the electrical panel. It was worth the hard work and I feel much safer that my computer, TV and other appliances didn't burn out. Aluminum is a lower volt 15 apm compaire to 12/2 copper. I added outdoor lighting, fan in bathroom more GFi's. It was worth the hard work.
