This report gives State and local building regulatory agencies in seismically active areas technical information and recommendations that can be used to reduce damage to manufactured homes during an earthquake. The report provides technical information to determine how: new manufactured home installations can be improved, designs of foundations and utility connections can be strengthened, existing manufactured home installations can be retrofitted, and how damage to manufactured home accessories and equipment can be mitigated. Five appendices provide an analysis of seismic code requirements, an analysis of seismic loads, a bibliography, a glossary of terms, and a brochure.
