    HI,
    I am remodeling my sister's kitchen.
    Last year, her drain leaked and I went to handy dandy Walmart to get a new drain pipe.
    I found it was bigger than the one on the mobile home. I went to a mobile home store and got the correct size.
    That being said....
    I purchased a mobile home sink. (waiting on it in the mail) I was wanting to get a disposal and install it. I am worried after everything fitting together,
    Thanks for any idaes.

    It will probably turn into a big problem.

    I don't get into much mobile home work but there is a very good website for questions called mobilehomerepair.com . They can answer any questions you have regarding mobile homes, I have contacted them regarding a heating issue and they got right back with a reply. Mobile home work can be challenging because often the materials used are different from the norm.

    They use the SAME materials, they may just use them differently sometimes. As far as installing a sink and connecting it is concerned, it is exactly like any house installation, as long as you have a drain pipe sticking out of the wall.
