Need a fresh perspective
Thanks in advance, My brain is tapped.
I have an electrical issue in a mobile home. Single wide, 100amp service. One lite in the kitchen w/o power, one outlet in the living room w/o power and a back bedroom and bath almost entirely without power.
My two biggest issues are that I have never troubleshooted in a mobile home, and I am not all that used to romex, either.
The breaker in the box was labeled "Kitchen, living room, bed, bath" and it is the only one that changed nothing when all of the working lights were on. So I narrowed that down, and tried the lead wire behind a known working breaker. All is copasetic in the box...
To be honest I thought the one light in the kitchen had nothing to do with it so I just dove straight into the bed/bath and undid everything the homeowner said was not working.
Turned breaker back on and tried everything with a wiggy. Nothin. So I undid the switch in the kitchen, again, nothing.
So here are my big questions... for those familiar with wiring in mobile homes. It appears the home run goes in the ceiling but homeowner told me there is no access to the ceiling. Is that possible? Where should I look for access? Am I assuming right that the kitchen light may also be on this same circuit as a bedroom at the other end of the home? Any other clues? The romex appears to be in great shape for a home built in 1981. I spent 2 hours there already and she is on a major budget.
Thanks for ANY advice!
