- The potential source of power must have the extra amperage capacity available.
- The connected load or the size of the mobile home electrical panel will need to be know.
- The number of circuits of the mobile home panel and their amperage will be needed as well.
- The concern is to provide the right amount of electrical power for the mobile home, and not overload the electric panel or source of the electrical power.
- Once all of this is information is known then the electrical wiring for the circuit size may be understood.
