I want to run an outside branch circuit from a mobile home disconnect. The service is over 50' away. The circuit would be run from the second required disconnect (within 30' of MH). Is this code compliant? Thanks

Where is the branch circuit going? If it is going to the mobile home then I say violation based on 225.30 but if it is going to a separate structure then there should be no issue.

What kind of disconnect is it?

Will there be enough lugs to terminate each conductor?

Will the circuit be protected at its rated amperage?

unless a lug is listed for more then one wire you can't just double up conductors in a lug, and 408.41 will only allow one wire per terminal for grounded conductors.

If you have a disconnect with extra breaker spaces then yes there is no problem.
