Answer: 
No, you would need to utilize a #4/0 Aluminum conductor. By doing so, it will limit the voltage drop to 2.73% or less when supplying 100.0 amps for 140 feet on a 120 volt system. Also, by using a #2/0 Copper conductor, the voltage drop will be limited to to 2.54% or less when supplying 100.0 amps for 140 feet on a 120 volt system. As far as finding the right size conductor, please refer to the link Read More

Answer: 
2-2-4-6 MHF is fine for a 100 amp subpanel. It is direct burial rated and doesn't need to be installed in conduit except for a short length at each end where the feeder extends above grade. Direct bury it with 24" cover. If you must pull it into conduit because of rocky conditions, the triplexing of the conductors will make it pretty difficult to pull into anything smaller than 2" PVC conduit. The Read More

Does it have to be used to feed power to a mobile home or can I use it to go from a 100 Amp meter pole to my main panel located inside a wood frame metal sided building? Can I direct bury it in the ground from the pole up to the point on entry to the building? Do I need to use it in conduit from the entrance point up to the main panel?

Answer: 
Mobile Home Feeder is commonly used to feed power from a 100 amp disconnect at a meter pole to a subpanel in a mobile home, but it can also be used from a 100 amp disconnect at a meter pole to a subpanel in a building. This product is direct burial rated, but must be installed in conduit anywhere that it may be exposed.

I have to replace my OLD dinosaur indoor Main lug breaker box in my mobile home; it will require a longer length Mobile home entrance wire than what is currently there.
The electrical set up is a electric meter in the front of the mobile home space, it has a 200 amp breaker, from there the wire runs underground approximately 70-80 feet to a “Hookup” panel in the back of the mobile home space, then the wire is run to the mobile home.

I need to buy only, the wire from that hookup box to the new panel, estimating 4 -5 feet down, 4-5 feet across (underground) then 8-10 feet to the main lug panel. The new Indoor Main Lug Panel (Home Depot SKU 674981) is on an interior wall, as the current Main Lug box.
I would need the 4 wires; 2- 120 volt, 1 neutral and redundant ground wire.

Questions:

Is this wire safe to be inside the mobile home?

Why is all the entrance wire aluminum, can I get copper wire? Don’t want any issues down the road.

Thank You

Answer: 
The service disconnect is 200 amp, you must either change that breaker to 100 amps or use 200 amp rated Mobile Home Feeder. The subpanel in your mobile home must have a main circuit breaker if you have more than 6 circuits. This wire is safe to use inside the mobile home as long as it is installed in conduit from the earth all the way to the subpanel. Aluminum cable is fine and will last many years if Read More

Aluminum cable is fine and will last many years if properly terminated. Copper mobile home feeder may be available on special order, but if you want to use copper I would recommend you just use THHN/THWN-2 conductors in conduit. Read Less
