I just paid about $1500 to have circuits put in because I'd been lazy 
and was using house wiring for all my 110v stuff.

i have a former wet bar room converted to use, and put in 4 20 amp 
circuits.  Also had to have the box replaced for the trailer because it 
had no empty breakers.

Result now is that a number of other circuits don't blow anymore that 
used to, and I know what is between the post outside the trailer and all 
my equipment as far as copper.

220 isn't any big deal, if you have the room for the breaker, probably 
300 bucks will get any licensed electrician to put in the line, breaker 
and outlet.  But if you are converting a virgin area, I'd pull two 110's 
and the 220 at least for a small setup.

I have an old mobile home that I know has romex in the walls, so it is 
not as bad as some of these trailers.  But I found from blowing circuits 
that in the 45 foot run of the trailer if you drew a lengthwise line 
down any approximate area you could put in a wall socket, all went dark 
at once.

Now I've got several points with power the length of the room where my 
servers are.


PS I really love my wifey.
