Get Winter Ready in 2010

Anti-FreezeNow that the temperatures at night are dropping lower, you need to take extra care with your mobile home and/or RV. Motor homes, RVs and Campers all need to be winterized as much as the family car. The lines for the water in these cold months along with the fact many only camp in warmer weather wreaks havoc on campers around this time every year. This Anti-Freeze for a camper is a non-toxic, inhibits corrosion and prevents algae growth. Protect your investment even when temperatures drop with burst protection up to -50ºF while lubricating the valves in your system.

For those of you campers who like to do winter camping, those who love to cook out in cold weather and anyone else who uses Propane gas we have our filling station fully operational during ALL business hours. We have a new delivery system and meter so we put the proper amount of propane in your tank no matter if it is one mounted to your RV or a small gas grill cylinder we fill them all. Note for propane customers, Alabama law requires your propane cylinder be re-certified after a certain number of years. If your bottle has exceeded this date or has damage that could compromise the integrity, we will not fill your tank. To be sure, you can look on the collar area of the tank for the year stamped into the metal. Call us at (205)556-1151, tell us the date on your bottle, and ask if we can fill it and we will be happy to let you know before you come.

We will be closed December 23rd, 24th and 25th for the Christmas Holiday and December 30th, 31st and January 1st for the New Year. We thank you for your continued business in 2010 and it has been a great year for us. From all of us at Alabama Mobile Home we wish you a happy holiday season and appreciate your patronage.

Get Your Mobile Home Air Conditioner Serviced Before The Summer Heat Hits

ServiceThese last few weeks we have seen the temperatures climbing here in Tuscaloosa County and they are going to keep doing so. In order to keep your home cool and keep your a/c unit as efficient as possible routine maintenance and cleaning is very important. When your a/c pulls the hot air from your home in to cool it and re-circulate, it removes most of the dust and other air pollutants. This means that you will acquire some dirt, dust and debris during normal use and even in you have a filter in a return box in your floor or in your furnace if it is a split system unit, some smaller dust and dirt passes through. This passing dust will build up on top of and between the small aluminum fins of the coil and when there is any type of restriction of the air flow it causes the unit to work harder to move the air. This can also cause your a/c to freeze up and make it stop working. Once it is frozen, you have to cut the unit off and let it thaw and in the heat of summer, it can take hours and in that time the temperature of your home will jump drastically. Our certified HVAC team will come out and do a complete inspection of your unit, clean the coil with a special coil cleaner that will dissolve any dirt and dust particles even the ones so small the eye cannot see. A clean unit is an efficient unit and in these hard economic times we know everyone needs to make their monthly bills as low as possible. Call our technician out today and see how once a dirty unit is cleaned it will cool faster and more efficient and save you money on your power bill as well.

Propane Gas Repaired and Selling Fast

We have always been one of Tuscaloosa Counties largest Propane Gas (L.P.) sellers since opening our doors in 1982. We do not make deliveries, but fill the smaller portable bottles. The limit on the size of a legal transportable tank is a 100# tank that hold 23.6 gallons of propane when empty. Last week when it was announced on the news that we may get snow in the area we had some of the busiest days of pure propane sales that we have had in many years. As a result of this our pump that allows us to pump the gas from our large storage tank into the smaller bottles and meter it out was down for almost a full day. We contacted out supplier and after working with them on this for a full day we are happy to say our propane filling station is back up and fully operational. We have always prided ourselves on being competitive with out propane prices and always fill the tanks to the 80% capacity allowed by law. This is because propane is a liquid gas that expands at a very rapid rate and needs the 20% of "empty" space for that expansion. For prices on our propane see our propane on our blog page here, or call us at (205)556-1151.

We thank you for your continues business and apologize for any inconvienence that our day of downtime may have caused our loyal customers.

Holiday Hours

First I want to wish every a happy and safe holiday. I hope everyone enjoys their Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or other holiday they celebrate this time of year. I also hope everyone has a safe and fun New Years. I wanted to let all of our customers know as soon as possible our holiday hours and days we will be closed so that you can arrange to get what you need before we are closed. I know many of you rely on us for your propane gas, mobile home parts, camper parts and your HVAC work. Our HVAC team has been hard at work fixing and servicing mobile home furnaces this winter. They also just finished another course on continuing their education so that they can keep up on all of the new technology and changes in mobile home heating and cooling. We are truly blessed in many ways. We have an great staff and our HVAC crew is one of the best for mobile homes in this area. Paul Marcum, our lead HVAC technician has been with us for over 15 years doing nothing but mobile home heating and cooling. This is a family owned business as most of our customers know, and he is as much family as the rest of our staff. My grandfather started this business in 1982 with a very simple goal in mind and that is to sell quality mobile home and camper parts and supplies at great prices. I was only four years old at that time but I can remember being a young boy going into his shop and seeing the way he interacted with customers. He genuinely wants to help everyone and his dedication is one of the qualities I respect most in him. So if there is anything you need this holiday season please give us a call at (205)556-1151 or email us at Below are the days we will be closed for the Christmas holiday as well as New Years.

We will be closed December 24th and 25th for Christmas and December 31st and January 1st for New Years. Please try to get anything you need before that, as we do not want anyone to have to do without during this holiday season.

We wish you a happy and safe holiday and thank you for another year of your business.
