Electrical Problems in Old Trailer?

My dad lives in a old trailer and I been staying with him due to heath issues. The other night I turned the bathroom light on and the lights started flickering and making a crackling noise and then the lights went out. Some outlets in the living room also don't work and the lights and outlets in the small bedroom don't work. We thought it may be the switch in the bathroom so we changed it and still nothing. Can anyone help?

Mobile homes / trailers have a different building code / standard. If youve paid attention over the years, you already know fires are very common in this type of residence, partly because the electrical wires used during construction are thinner and not as durable as the material used in houses. My recommendation: move him somewhere else, somewhere safe. If you cannot, disconnect the power entirely. Use candles and lanterns, anything but electricity.

The trailer sounds unsafe. If you need to stay at this place, have an electrician look at it.

Mice may be in the walls and nibbling on the wires. Yes, get an electrician.
