Looking for someone to hook up a gas range, stop a drippy faucet and check under mobil home for working heat tap on

Familiar with mobile homes, and how to hook up a stove and make sure gas is not leaking, so myself and my family don't get blown up.

Sounds like you are thinking of a Handyman - but since you have a real concern regarding the gas connection safety, I would suggest a Plumbing contractor instead.

They routinely do gas piping work so can do a range hookup with not problem and wouldnormally have any parts you might need on their truck, which saves on handyman time running to the store to get parts. They can also do any piping changes or valve changeout required by code (the old type valves are no longer legal in most areas) or because you have tight clearance so need a different valve orientation or longer gas flax tubing or such.

A plumber is of course best suited (and most likely to have the needed parts with him) to do a faucet repair or rebuild - or if it turns out to be that it is so corroded that you need a new one, the person for that too.

A plumber is also commonly the one who installs heat tape (assuming on piping), so can do that too and would commonly have some with him in the truck in areas needing heat tape - so sounds like you will get your money's worth out of his trip as uyou are looking at around an hours work at the most optomistic, and quite possibly 2-3 hours depending on how much work each job actually involves.
