Trailer park living

My Dad has lived in a Trailer Park for as long as I can recall.

Growing up in that locale was crazy and I don’t ever anticipate living like that again. Dad is nice about maintaining her lot and her apartment however multiple in the locale are not. I think that they feel it is only a “temporary” apartment so they don’t care for it as most people do a conventional house. Dad even petitioned the Park Manager so she could put up privacy fencing on her lot. This way, she didn’t have to look at the neighbors mess in their yard all the time, anyway, there are some advantages to living in a mobile home. The upkeep is minimal for the most part and so long as you keep up with repairs to the skirting around them, your plumbing and ductwork are safe from detriment. Last year, there were multiple dire storms that blew through our part and it detrimentd part of my mom’s skirting. The real problem came when that, in turn, detrimentd the ductwork for the Heating and A/C system. You see, the ductwork for the Heating and A/C system is located underneath the trailer. This is the only way it can be installed and they need to be protected from the elements at all times. Animals can also get under the trailer and wreak havoc on the system and the insulation around the ductwork. Dad had to contact the Heating and A/C specialist to come out and repair this before she could turn the system back on. There are Heating and A/C companies that deal exclusively with Mobile Homes as the equipment and upgrade are absolutely odd from that of a conventional home. I am delighted she has someone she knows and can trust to work on her system.
