You need to provide more information.

What do you want in the shed? An overhead light? An outlet or two? Do you need 220? Do you intend to run high current tools, or just minimal stuff? Do you have any open spaces in your current panel? What is the size (in amps) of the current panel (60 amps? 100 amps?) How far is the shed from the panel?

ok i will give you few tips :

i been work on quite few mobile home parks so here a quick run down.

for 8X10 shed useally have 15 or 20 amp circuit running there.
mantory use gfci repectale is a must .
single light socket useally is enough useally like 75 or 100 watts bulb but put someplace safe to advoid getting hitting it

if more than that what i say above please do post it back here

and all the wires from shed have to run to your mobile home breaker box and if you have empty slot there. you can add it but for safety reason most mobile home park have a policy and check with the manger for burying the wire and most area will not allow the shed wire go to the meter socket. please read this note carefull here.

if other question feel free to ask us here

merci, marc
