I am not an expert at doing any kind of manual labor but I watched some being done once. I think you just need to have your gas company change the jets. I’ve had it done for gas water heaters and gas stoves. Anyway the gas company would be the best source to ask about this one.
Re: dealers licensing in yousr state, I cannot answer definitively unless I know your state and it happens to be CA. How many mobiles do you expect to do in a year? Couldn’t you do two, then your wife two, how about your dog Spot, your brother, uncle, grandfather and their respective spouses— two each, then there are your friends, and the butcher, the baker, and the candle stick maker. How many do you exp[ect to do each year?
Most parks don’t allow rentals. I would only consider this option if I had them on private land (which incidently, is what I do).
Every state is different. To find out how to check for back taxes ask any mobile home owner or park manager which governmental agency taxes them and call that agency for the answer to your question.
One more point. You didn’t ask, but that won’t stop me from telling you anyway. At these prices you might want to try to resell some of them, right from where they sit on the mover’s lot. Be sure you have bought or optioned up all of the good deals, IN WRITING, before bringing any of your customers to his lot, for obvious reasons. You can advertise them for sale and charge the REGULAR PRICE for the moving and setup. It should be easy to do, especially if you offer to finance the ($1,500) moving and set up costs along with the mobile home. I bet you could get dthe first 10 mobiles FREE (with the park’s move-in allowance) and dthen make a grand each or more off 10 others by reselling them “as is, where is”. Hey, Dave how much risk would you be taking to run a couple of $25 ads to make another $10,000 in profits.
That sounds great. Ten thousand dollars free cash and 10 free mobile homes delivered and installed free, to boot!
