Notice he marked the panel A/C#1 and A/C#2.
This is not the service panel, but rather, a sub panel. Can you see what's wrong with this next picture?
The ground is connected to the neutral bus. This is the ground for the top left, 240V circuit (with the white handle tie). This circuit wire (Romex) ran the length of the home (about 30') to the electric clothes dryer. It was well supported as you can see in this next photo.
Did I mention, this is a mobile home
