Here is the scenario … there is a lot with 2 mobile homes and a garage. Electrical service comes in underground to an exterior wall of the garage with 3 meters on it. One meter for each mobile home and one for the garage. The electrical exits each meter through a service box with a 100 amp disconnect in it. Each meter has this. service then proceeds underground and enters the mobile homes. The mobile homes each have a 200 amp disconnect inside their panel. why is the disconnect at the meters so much smaller than the ones in the homes? Is it to ensure the power company equipment is protected? Especially if something happens underground between the garage and mobile home?
