It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way…”

– Charles Dickens, in a Tale of Two Cities.

Why is there so much struggle to “control the narrative” in media, politics, business, etc.?  It could be summed up in the two quotes above.

If ever there was a need for objective thinking, careful reasoning, and then precise action based upon facts not myths – this is certainly one of those time.  Let’s dive into this week’s headlines in review.

Expert’s NWS Statement Reveals Serious Problems in Tornado WARNINGS & Manufactured Housing Safety Data

January 30th, 2018 Comments off

GregSchoorNWSLinkedinManufacturedHousingIndustryTornadoSafetyDeathDataStatisticsReportsDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews550x400

 

Greg Schoor is about to become much better known in MHVille.

 

In an exclusive statement published on MHLivingNews, a National Weather Service (NWS) severe storms expert – Greg Schoor – has made admissions that could shake the foundation of what the public has been led to believe about manufactured homes and severe windstorm fatalities.

Schoor admits that tornado death-counts for mobile and manufactured homes fail to make a number of obvious, and important, distinctions.

 

What Was Said by Schoor, What It Means, and What This Could Mean for MH Owners, Shoppers and the MH Industry

TornadoUSDeathsChinaPersonPickedUpYouTubeDailyBusinessNewsManufacturedHousingIndustryMHProNews_001For example, per Schoor’s statement, if someone dies outdoors of their dwelling as a result of following the weatherman’s advice to leave their “mobile home,” and “immediately seek other shelter,” that tragedy has been counted as a tornado death in a factory-built, “mobile home.

For another example, if someone dies from any cause, – including a structural failure, a heart attack, or a tree falling and killing someone – those are all being tallied as a storm death attributed to the mobile or manufactured home (MH).

Schoor’s carefully analyzed statements provide numerous revelations that should be a wake-up call for MH industry professionals.

Third-party research or news reports often paint manufactured homes in a negative light, which routinely includes the use of the apparently problematic NWS statistics.

A recent example is the flawed research published in 2017 by Michigan State University (MSU), debunked last year in an analysis by MHProNews, in concert with key Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) staff.

What the newest ManufacturedHomeLivingNews expose implies is that the actual number of deaths tied to structural failure is lower than is being reported.

Further, the MHLivingNews report spotlights how the frequency or odds of even such misleading ‘tornado death tolls’ are incredibly low.

Perhaps worse is the implication that people who take a weatherman’s warning to heart, and leave their homes, could well be dying as a result. They might well have survived, if they had sheltered in place, following tips in the same, new MHLivingNews special report.

That in-depth special report – which includes dramatic video – is linked below.

Weather Expert’s Surprising, Bombshell Statement on Tornado Deaths and Affordable Manufactured Homes

 

Help Us, Help You, Help Others.”  ©

Industry professionals and MH homeowners are advised to post that special report link on MHLivingNews – shown immediately above – on their social media, as it could save lives…

…and over time, further exposure of these facts could lead to  more respect, a better understanding and thus additional new manufactured homes being sold, as the truth is better understood.

Industry members have told us that sharing the windstorms video with customers have helped them quell the fears of buyers “sitting in the fence.”

 

Why the Schoor Report Matters to Virtually Everyone in MHVille

LATonyKovachMHProNews-com-

L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach addressing industry professionals in an educational session.

While the surveys have been unscientific, L. A. “Tony” Kovach in his public presentations has asked a variation on the following question for years. It is safe to estimate that over 1,000 manufactured home professionals in recent years have publicly raised their hands to agree with the following.  Here’s the question.

Do you believe that negative media reports that focus on tornado deaths in mobile or manufactured homes hurts the industry’s image, and therefor sales?’

Virtually every hand in every group in every location has gone up. Literally not one hand was raised to disagree with that assessment.

Assistant Mayor Pushes to Remove “Trailer” Terminology

October 26th, 2016 Comments off

Portsmouth, NH assistant mayor Jim Splaine is doing what he can to put an end to the stigma that’s often felt by people who live in manufactured homes.

Too often, the areas where manufactured homeowners live are referred to as “trailer parks,” reports seacoastonline’s Jeff McMenemy.

I think it does upset people who live in home parks and have them referred to as mobile homes,” Splaine said.

As MHLivingNews recently reported, these negative attitudes don’t always come from strangers, as Splaine described.

Next Negative Media Freight Train is Coming towards Manufactured Housing

January 30th, 2016 Comments off

SeattleTimesNextRoundofManufacturedHousingMediaWarA number of informed sources are telling MHProNews that the Seattle Times is about to launch their next story targeting Berkshire Hathaway companies and through them, the manufactured housing industry.

According to the most recent of these sources, their next story on manufactured housing could be published “any day now.”

The attack stories are widely viewed by industry insiders as having as a key goal the derailing of S 682.

The Daily Business News will be monitoring these and other related developments. MHProNews and/or MHLivingNews are preparing to follow up, based upon the nature of the latest claims and their (in)accuracy.

Two of prior reports on the subject are linked below. ##

Manufactured Homes Soar in Energy Efficiency, says University of Michigan

October 31st, 2014 Comments off

value-zonic-mapWhen the temperatures drop in wintertime, owners of Manufactured Homes reap a great benefit, lower heating bills. One of the top trends driving today’s housing market is the demand for energy-efficient homes that don’t sacrifice comfort for quality. Here’s what is trending for 2015 and beyond.

Because of the way manufactured homes are constructed, they usually have about 30 to 50 percent less air leakage than stick-built homes,” Bobby Campbell, director of value engineering for Champion Homes Inc., tells Marketwired and MHProNews. “The University of Michigan did a study a few years ago that tested stick-built homes against manufactured and modular homes and found that the manufactured homes were ‘tighter’ than stick-built homes.”

The Michigan Manufactured Housing Association (MMHA) explains that part of the reason modern manufactured homes may leak less air than conventional construction is because they are built to a special national code that site-built homes are not. Based on manufactured home construction and safety standards set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, different regions of the country fall under thermal categories determined by their climates. Michigan is located in thermal Zone 3, which mandates the strictest heat leakage protection.

MMHA states that in addition to the national and state codes manufactured homes are required to meet, many homeowners are choosing energy efficient features to keep their homes better protected against the cold. Special insulation, high-performance windows and other materials are reducing overall energy costs and use fewer natural resources, which is a perk for many environmentally and budget conscious homeowners. ##
