Basic Service Information
Cavco believes that the best way to provide product service to customers is by using a specialized approach where each Cavco manufacturing facility handles the service on the 688彩票官网s it builds, rather than having a central service group. Therefore, it is important to contact the proper facility to obtain service. The phone number you should call for service is on the cover of the 688彩票owner’s manual that came with your 688彩票官网. If you do not have a 688彩票owner’s manual or you are unsure which facility built your 688彩票官网, the first seven digits of the serial number assigned to your 688彩票官网 is a means of determining where it was built.
Note: If you are looking for service information, visit our factory listing on our Contact Us page for a complete list of our factories and their phone numbers.
Your first step in obtaining warranty work is to call the selling retailer, as stated in the “Owner’s Obligation” part of the “Manufacturer’s One Year Limited Warranty.” It is up to the selling retailer to determine whether your request is related to work they provided or the construction of the 688彩票官网 and the manufacturer. The manufacturing facility should only be contacted if the service issues are not adequately addressed by the retailer.
Manufactured or “HUD Code” 688彩票s Versus Modular 688彩票s
A manufactured 688彩票官网 is constructed entirely in a controlled factory environment, built to the federal Manufactured 688彩票 Construction and Safety Standards (better known as the HUD Code). This is a brief description of the differences between a HUD code 688彩票官网 and a Modular 688彩票官网. This brief outline is not meant to be all inclusive. Either 688彩票官网 can be referred to as a manufactured 688彩票官网 since they are both built at a manufacturing facility and shipped to the site. However, the term “manufactured” is usually reserved for a HUD code 688彩票官网. Modular 688彩票官网s are sometimes referred to as “Factory Built Buildings” (FBB).
Modular 688彩票s – Modular buildings (residential or commercial) are constructed to prescriptive design requirements as set forth in various building codes which can vary from area to area. (i.e. – UBC, IBC, SBC, NEC, etc.) Modular buildings are built to the same local building codes to which site-built structures are built. A modular building can be designed to be set on the site with or without a steel chassis or frame attached. Modular buildings can usually be placed anywhere. Most modular 688彩票官网s are set on a permanent foundation with stem walls and poured concrete footers.
HUD Code or Manufactured 688彩票s – Manufactured 688彩票官网s (residential only) built to the United States Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Manufactured 688彩票 Construction and Safety Standards 3280 and 3282, dictated by Congress in 1974. These HUD code 688彩票官网s have flexible designs based on performance testing. However, the steel chassis or frame on a HUD code 688彩票官网 must remain attached when the 688彩票官网 is secured to the final 688彩票官网 site and foundation. A HUD coded manufactured 688彩票官网 can be sold in any state in the country688彩票 because it is a nationwide code which preempts local building codes. HUD code 688彩票官网s sometimes require special zoning for placement. Manufactured 688彩票官网s are set with either pad and pier foundations or permanent foundations.
