How to get power back to half my mobile home

Do you have circuit breakers? Turn them all off, starting with the main breaker- then starting w/main breaker turn each one on- that resets the breaker box. Fuse box? Check for blown fuses-they may look like shot gun cartridges-try those first (by exchanging them-you may have round glass ones-if so, they often turn color in the center-replace. Is your service underground? (call electric co). Service overhead? Look for downed wire. None of this matters if you are using too much power and your ele. System won't handle-that means get an upgrade to hold it or cut down on service used that controls those items. It can be either the electric company or private electrician that makes this work. Usually, if the ele co cuts your service you will have no power.

It depends on whats wrong. You should probably call an electrician because it sounds like your main breaker is bad or it could be your feeder wires going to the panel.

Why only half? Don't you want power in your entire home? Did you pay the bill? More details are needed in your question.

It's amazing how often this happens in mobile homes though.

Check the circuit box. Make sure all of the switches are in the ON position

Be careful I used to live n a mobile home where only half the electricity work and it burned down.. If you are renting the landlord must fix it or move you to another place

If the power is completely cut from your home, I think it will be prudent for you to contact your insurance agent who will then contact the relevant authority to come and rectify the situation as first as they could.
