Is there more than one breaker that doesn't work?

Are you in the United States? Check things that use 240 volts like the stove, dryer and water heater. Are they working properly? Have you checked the breaker panel? Try turning th circuit breakers completely off and then back on.

Appears that all breakers are working. There juice for all the breakers but the outlets and lights has no juice on the side that has no power. Change a ground fault receptacle in one room to see if it was that and it's still the same. I live in the u.s.a and more specifically in Texas.

When I first bought my place I had a similar issue. It turned out one of the legs in the service cable had burnt in two. Had to replace the service to fix it.

If you used a non contact tester then you don't really know. You need to use a multimeter if you didn't.

Since it is double wide I'd think there should be a connector between the two halves unless each half has its own panel. Have you checked for a connector?
