    Park Homes - Caravan or Building

    Thats what I thought yet the whole supply set up to the unit is as if it were a caravan. A small enclosure on a pole before the home with an RCD covering the whole installation, and only a 6mm 32A supply to it as well. No good for the electrica hob and double oven they wanted!!!!!!!!

Just because you a know a little and might "get away with it" doesn't justify you are breaking the law. The fact you havent done any tests could also mean the installation is dangerous - just cause...
