I have a park that we expanded and we did full electric on the new portion, I have another community that is 100% electric. The four homes in the picture attached are all-electric homes.

My other communities are hybrid.

Here are a few realizations that I have found.

1. The factories charge more for new homes with Gas its like $800 more.

2. Electric water heaters in my experience are more likely to have problems.

3. Many older parks don't have pedestals with high enough AMPs to power a fully electric home. Anyone that knows this better than me feel free to correct me but older parks or hybrid parks typically have 100 AMPs where you need a 200 AMP pedestal

4. Utility companies can add frustration when adding units, so I have opted for full power for that convenience.

5. Depending on your set-up you can generate power through solar or wind which you cannot do with gas.

6. Gas heaters do much better in cold climates.

7. If you add a full-sized AC unit you may need 200 AMPS of power anyways.

What else am I missing?
