I would like to install a garbage disposal in my manufactured home. Can anyone help me? I need to install an electrical plug and switch. I know how to do that, it's getting the conduit through the wall from where the switch will be placed to where the plug will go in under the sink. Also, which side of the sink is best for installing the disposal? Thank you for your help.

    I would have a professional install the wiring to be safe.. it needs to be grounded because its near Water... Barter some homebaked goods or another Craft you do like crocheting or Knitting or sewing to cover the cost.. its worth it and won't hurt to ask...

    I really think this is a job for a professional. You have both plumbing and electrical work, you need to install a new outlet which means running a new line from the panel, and it's near water. Not to mention, it's pretty difficult to work under a sink. Do any of this wrong, and you could end up with a leak or an electrical hazard.

    Whenever I want to tackle a project like this I go to YouTube and watch several different videos of people doing it. I pick the best one to have ready as I'm working to follow step-by-step. When you go to get the garbage disposal have someone there recommend what will work best for your pipes and under your sink.
