Easy way in install off the grid electric. In this video Jon and Charles show you how they, effectively, installed electric into their off the grid tiny house. Their cabin is 100% off the grid, solar powered but also has the ability to hook up to a generator. Having a cabin that is wired for solar power, or that can easily accept power from a generator allows them to have a more comfortable stay when off the grid and have several options for power. It also lowers the monthly cost of maintaining the property dude to the fact there is absolutely no electric bill.

Masks that wont break the bank

If you enjoyed this video please subscribe:

  In this video Charles talks about mask that are easy to get that wont break the bank. Rest assured that you can BREATH EASY knowing you got a quality mask for next to nothing. In this video Charles covers the GP5 Russian mask and the Israeli Civilian. The Gp5 can be had for roughly 11 dollars. For that price you should expect to get a mask, a arry bag and a few old canisters. The Israeli mas has been going up in price, given recent events, and you will be looking to spend, roughly around 30 to 40 dollars. For this price you should expect to get; the mask, a drinking straw and an old canister.  As it goes with anything the newer in production the mask, the more its going to cost. The same thing can be said for the canisters. ABEKP3 filters, Nato filters will fit the Israeli mask and some say the ABECK filters will fit the Gp5. Though both mask are 40mm, the Gp5 has Gost threading and Nato has a standard. With this in mind canisters are not exactly interchangeable, sort of...  Polish cans will fit both masks ans some say ABEKP3 cans will also do the same. However, most Nato canisters will not fit the GP5. When it comes to buying canisters common sense must play apart... The older the filter, the less protection is in order. But, hey, it beats a milk soaked dew rag. In date canisters you can spend upwards to 40 to 60 bucks a can, whereas ones just a few years old past expired date can be had for  around 12 bucks. Take into consideration how the cans are stored, are they; vac packed in mylar,  are they in a sealed box, are they loose with a suspicious looking sticker or do they have nothing at all.  A properly sealed air tight can should be good indefinitely... but again the only way you can be sure is to have one in date.
