Eragorn, I think you might have gone to a modular home factory. A mobile home is just the old term for manufactured home.

Ben:

Good course so far - lots of good information.

I believe there is a misidentification in the Electrical section, however:

8.12 Polarization


(a) The identified (white) conductor should be employed for grounding circuit conductors only and should be connected to the identified (white) terminal or lead on receptacle outlets and fixtures. It should be the unswitched wire in switched circuits, except that a cable containing an identified conductor (white) should be permitted for single-pole three-way or four-way switch loops where the connections are made so that the unidentified conductor is the return conductor from the switch to the outlet. Painting of the terminal end of the wire is not required.
(b) If the identified (white) conductor of a cable is used for other than grounded conductors or for other than switch loops as explained above (for a 240 volt circuit for example), the conductor should be finished in a color other than white at each outlet where the conductors are visible and accessible.
(c) Green-colored wires or green with yellow stripe should be used for grounding conductors only.



Should identify the white wires "to be employed for grounded circuit conductors only"

There are a lot of other typos that don't mean much, but I think this one is important and needs to be corrected.

Thanks!

Good course. I have lived in a mobile home and presently live in a manufactured home so am very interested in this course. Is there any information about placing these structures on screw-in piles? We have used the oilfield type of rig anchors and put them in 10 feet deep as our frost line is at about 8 feet and we wanted to avoid frost heaves. The anchors are are all welded to the frame and the home is very stable.

I enjoyed the course.

Not sure why I can't seem to pass this examine. Studied all the materials, took all the quizzes and had no problems but when I took the examine it seemed to me that several of the questions were twisted around, intentionally mis-worded.
Decided to revisit the material and examine, take more notes and try again. Same story.
Why can't you show us what we are getting wrong so we can learn from our mistakes? This is the first course I have ever taken an failed. I believe I know the majority of the information but have no ideal what I am missing.

I'm in the same boat as you Ron. I have attempted this exam at least 5 times, all with failing grades. Is this a case of the "shall" vs "should" rules? For many of the questions I have encountered, I have even referenced reading material directly from the course. Can't seem to get over 77. What gives? I'd like to think I read the questions thoroughly.

I still cant figure it out. I would like the test to show us the correct answers once were finished completing the exam.
