in Missippi. do need to pour a concrete slab or purchase some big screws?

You could how ever purchase a few screw in ground anchors that are often used to stabilize power poles. They work as a wood screw as you turn them they screw themselves further into the earth. Trouble is it normally takes a couple of very strong people with a long length of pipe to screw them into the ground. It’s best if they are screwed in on a 45 degree angle to give more strength, so the purchase is in line with the tip of the screw part. Providing what sort of under ground compound beneath where you are as to how strong these anchors are, but anyway they are retrievable should you require them out at some stage. They also act as a dead man like when trying to remove a tractor or bulldozer from sinking mud when nothing else is available to tie your ropes to. I myself have used these screw anchors to hold up a rotating windmill. It actually took 8 screw anchors & as far as I’m aware it’s been standing 20 years on farm land

  1. Check you local building codes. Some new homes use a ribbon strips of cement to set them on and anchor too but older type use huge type nails to pound into ground then with straps and bolts to attach to trailer. county advice is there for you if you ask most of the time. check web search for your area. good luck.

  2. Ever watch Dorthy in the Wizard of Oz? Check with your local building permit office. They will tell you what is required to tie down your mobile home.

  3. Every state has different requirements so as the other person stated check with local codes to make sure you at least meet the minimum requirements for your location.

  4. You can’t. Most states building codes require a licensed installer to "tie-down" manufactured homes.

    Check yours for the beat answer
