Aside from the fact most of the piping is usually plastic tubing or pex rather than metal (at least within the trailer as opposed to underneath, which is sometimes still metal), and when you cut into walls to repair piping (though usually most of it is just run laid down loose on the floor behind the cabinets / bed / countertops / table and such) you are cutting through panelling rather than drywall, so many or most plumbers can and will do trailer plumbing repairs.


If the piping is underneath, especially if the ground underneath is junky or there are years of debris, animal leavings, very muddy, or sewage spillage under there - that is where it can sometimes be tough to find one to do underside repairs. And where the light plastic box store sleds come in very handy - one to lie in, one to drag along with your parts and tools. And before the days of SharkBite and compression fittings (I prefer the latter to the former for better but still not as good as jointed or soldered fitting life), a lot would not work on copper piping under trailers with blown-in or board foam insulation because of the fire hazard when soldering, but with those no-heat piping repair solutions and Pex (which is compression tool assembled) that is not such a drawback now.


So - Plumbing would be the normal Search the List category to get a repair done - or for full trailer repiping if you have been havings a bunch of leaks, more likely Remodeling - Modular and Mobile Homes would be the best category.
