Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question. 1) 1st off, a handyman should never be hired to troubleshoot and correct electrical problems as they are not licensed electricians. Sorry to say, but handymen did not pass a rigorous electrical code examination and they are not qualified as an electrician in my opinion. Your hired the wrong person for the job. A competent electrician will be able to resolve the problem. 2) A double wide home will contain a cable or a junction splice box in the underside that divides the home power into 2 separate sections. Possibly an open on one of the circuits or a loose wire splice ? 3) An AC voltmeter will be required to troubleshoot the problem and take some voltage measurements.
