Over 20 years of research is finally published and available for purchase in this daily self help, DIY reference book. Please contact me directly (tfrentz@hotmail.com) to purchase so I do not have to give the marke-teers >60% of my revenue! 

 

You can also view more previews at Google Play Store & Google Books – https://play.google.com/books/reader?id=eSasDwAAQBAJ&hl=en&pg=GBS.PP1

 

This book is full of lesser known knowledge, guides, advice and facts surrounding the culture of the United States circa 2020. In this book you will also find my recommendations for some of the latest products and technology that improves our standard of living. The best way I can summarize IT all is to just call the book, LIFE Wisdom.

The following pages share my efforts to organize and shed light on the most useful information in my life. This book categorizes the knowledge based on whether IT involves helping, simplifying, making, stretching, spending, living or sharing something.

The main objectives of this book are:
1. Educate the reader.
2. Connect with sponsors and increase funding for the Helping Hands Network volunteer and emergency cause programs.
3. Connect with global connections to help establish international programs.

Please submit any product or other helpful information you would like to see included in future editions and you will receive future editions for FREE!

At times the line may be blurred between opinion and fact but I do the best I can. My definition of fact refers to a first encounter experience by myself or another credible source. Some of your experiences surrounding certain wisdoms may not hold up to my experiences I share in this book.

Updates after publishing can be followed at [freeHelpingHands.wordpress.com] We look forward to publishing many more editions.

The proceeds from sales go to help fund our programs so if you are given a copy please consider contributing to our cause through paypal id tfrentz@hotmail.com or mailing a check payable to Tim Frentz.

 

 

About the Author

Tim Frentz (T) is an artist, eco activist, gardener, soccer player, business consultant, fitness trainer, author and practitioner of Yoga who recorded his spiritual journey in this new age work “the Helping Hands Spirit” and a comic book series called “the ventures of HELPING HANDS”.

He was reborn in Grand Island, Nebraska USA in 1977. His early autobiography was first published in 2012, seven years after the death of his father whom inspired T to leave home and give himself to causes in urgent need.

T describes how his experiences inspired him to trade in his possessions and hit the road. Several times he was robbed of resources but instead of relying on a flawed legal system to recover his losses, T accepts it as a lesson from his former guru’s.

This early autobiography shares T’s early life in the central United States, his college days at the University of Nebraska, visits to spiritual communities, meetings with various saints, his training of disciple volunteers, T’s building of the Helping Hands Network, his time helping causes in need and his steps to become a new age yogi.

T brings a new age meditation method known as “Creative Meditation” into the light. This is achieved through combining traditional meditational practice with the act of artistic expression and creation. He is known for his wood sculpting and other art which is largely created during a meditative state.

T continues publishing books & comics, teaching yoga & fitness, and speaks widely in the United States. His organization “The Helping Hands Network” is growing daily in the United States and continues to connect causes in need with thousands of resources through http://netvibes.com/HelpingHandsNet

I have compiled video to go with this blog. View it here:   https://youtu.be/1T69qjxgcxU

I’ve been following renewable energy trends for 20 years. Products and prices are always changing so I am creating this blog source to help organize everything in one source.

I’m always spending time looking for different schematics and the best prices for products and I want to help everyone save time on their searches as well.

Please comment below and help contribute to the search for the best relative information.

 

FIRST, we need to divide the schematics by category.

  • Small Range Solar Only
  • Small Range Wind ONLY
  • Small Range Solar & Wind Combined
  • RV travel OFF Grid
  • Mid Range System with EV charging

 

Here are the best sources I found to gather the following information.

If you wish to use this controller to charge exotic/strange voltage lithium battery banks (such as a tesla/nissan leaf battery), you can change the charge controller parameters manually with the mt-50:

  1. Go to the main menu and select “4. Control Para.”. In this menu, use the arrow keys to navigate around and see the current charge profile parameters. You need to arrow up first and start changing your settings with the lowest voltage setting which is “Discharge Limit”. If you do not do this you will get “PARA ERROR” messages.
  2. If you want to change a parameter, hold down the “ok” button. If it asks for a password input, leave it blank and hold down “ok”. You will see the number flash, and you can use the arrows to change the parameter.
  3. When you are done editing the parameter, press “ok” and it will ask you to save the settings. Press “ok” again. You need to repeat this process every time you change parameters on a screen (so you can only edit two parameters at a time).
  4. When you are done editing, use the navigation arrows to ensure that all changes have been saved.
  5. Connect your system to solar power and watch the charge voltage. If it charges up to the charge limit voltage that you programmed, you are good to go.

Great video source is DIY Solar w/ Will Prowse. He has several video’s that explain the details of using a Tesla Battery in a DIY application.

$490 (shipped) [Quantity of 7 Nissan Leaf modules] 57aH 3.4kwH 330 cells @ Tech Direct Club in L.A. CA ($70 per 500wH) [est. $140 per 1kwH]

$1150 (pickup) 250aH 5.2kwH 444 cells @ HSR Motors in NC

*Tesla Modules require a BMS board conversion. Look at HSR Motors for details.

Here are most of the items I ordered pre installation.

Here are most of the items I ordered pre installation.

$490 Leaf G2 bundle – $70 /ea. module x 7 from Tech Direct Club  [est $140 per 1kwH]

  • These Leaf batteries have a smaller variance of useful voltage but if you balance your energy input with your consumption, that will not be a big factor. For my initial tests, I only have 2 [100 watt] Mono Solar panels bringing in an average of 30 volts of charge which results in .1 of a volt of storage being added to the battery bank PER HOUR with 0 draw on it.
  • On the consumption end, I have my office equipment drawing .25 volts per hour. So if I want to be off grid completely this helps give me a more accurate idea of how much more input to add to the system.

$60 BMS full kit (circuit board, BMS, quick disconnect w/ 16″ cables, hardware) [NO VIDEO’s Showing how to customize this for 6s 24v yet but I got it just in case something is posted or in case I decide to up the system to 48v with 7s.]

$30 LCD display (NOT NEEDED) It is not color and the function buttons are hidden behind the casing so I am returning it and installing a simple $14 DROKing.com monitor in the slot.

$25 Side Panel Controller Box for BMS & Display

$30 Screws, bus bars, cables, bolts

$15 All thread bars

$0 salvaged wood for frame and handles

$0 TAX $0 SHIPPING +$30 discount coupon!

Amazon Seller services has the absolute worst customer service we have ever encountered.

The best way to help them improve is to share negative reviews like this one with all of your network.

AMAZON SELLER SERVICES is SO PISS POOR because they rely on Artificial Intelligence and Auto generated algorithms to respond to customer trouble tickets.

In our dealings with this service, we filed 5 identical trouble tickets and received a wide variety of responses. The responses were often not relevant to our complaint. Some of the responses even came from a department in Canada.

The problem with our sales account started when we sold an item on amazon but the physical item was sold earlier that day before we could unlist it. We refunded the online buyer but the auto generated system suspended our account anyway.

We could not access our inventory to unlist our items and the Amazon system is not setup to remove the listings either. This resulted in another item selling with no way for us to notify the buyer or send them a refund.

 

While all of this is happening, we are submitting trouble tickets to report the issues.

We received the following paraphrased replies:

1.) We are reviewing your account and you will not be able to sell. Please provide a Utility bill and any sales related documents to help us decide if you may sell on Amazon again.

2.)  In response to our files being submitted, we get this response FROM AMAZON.CA (That’s CANADA support NOT .com USA) …. “Let us know how we did. Were you satisfied with the support provided?”

HAHAHA – seriously??? All the remaining follow up replies also come from Amazon.CA

3.) This is an auto reminder… we need more information to resolve your case. If you still need assistance, please respond to this message. If we have resolved your issue, take no further action and we will close your case.

SO WE RESPOND and we get #4.

4.) We have not heard from you so your case has been closed. If you still need further support please contact us.

OMG – this is getting ridiculous.

 

5.) Please view the open cases section in your seller account to read our response to your support request.

SO WE DID and get a notice that our request was denied and we can not sell on Amazon.

 

6.) So we open a second account and the system says it will review our account information before activating the new account.

AND WE GET the same responses as #1-5 all over again!!!

 

GAME OVER! WE GIVE UP AND PUBLISH THIS BLOG TO EXPOSE THEIR PISS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

 

7.)  10/20/17 – We email Amazon CEO Bazos – Jeff@Amazon.com with this story.

8.) 10/27/17 – He has an Amazon Seller Manager email us with a basic hello. She says….

“My name is Nithya, and I’m a member of the Amazon.com Seller Performance Team.  Jeff Bezos received your email and requested that I research this issue and respond on his behalf.”

SHE THEN GOES ON TO SIMPLY COPY AND PASTE THE PREVIOUS MESSAGE ABOUT SUBMITTING A proposal to how we will rectify our sales complaints….

This is beyond ludicrous.  Amazon Seller customer service is absolutely the definition of insane!!!

 

9.) We oblige “NITHYA” and again submit our story about being locked out of the account and unable to control any sales support issues and submit the link to this blog once again.

 

10.) 10/28/17 – We again receive the AUTOMATED BULLSHIT REPLY that simply says, “we reviewed your account and conclude that you can no longer sell on Amazon.”

 

11.) We again email Jeff with this link for his continued review of his departments failures in customer service.  There is no reason non profit foundations should be treated like this when they are cooperating to fix issues on their donation sales platforms.

12.) We again receive the same auto generated reply as #8 above with Nithya. This time the name has been changed to Francine but the message is the same. WTH???

13.) We also received a random reply from the Amazon.Ca email stating…..

“I understand your concern regarding the account password reset and
login. I’ve checked your email correspondent. You’ll need to
contact our partner site, Amazon.ca, for more information about account password
and login, as our international websites operate independently. You can contact
them directly at:”
THIS IS THE REPLY WE GET IN REGARDS TO OUR COMPLAINT THAT WE ARE GETTING NOTICES FROM amazon.Ca in the first place when we are not even signing in to a amazon.ca account.

 

THE SAGA CONTINUES!!!!!!

 

This case is making a wonderful youtube video and we are enjoying slandering Amazon as much as possible in our public presentations because they need to get their act together!!!!!!!!!!!

by Timothy Jon Frentz

 

Contact:
Tim Frentz
308.258.xxxx
tfrentz@hotmail.com

Genre: Religious / Inspirational

Style: Written in Second Person

Target Readers: All ages. This book appeals to all with religious curiosity and interests and stands above the competition because it is written for the penny pinchers who are hardest to sell to.  This will tap the spending vault of the tightest pockets like no other book can. My readers like religious, self help, inspirational, relationship building, action/adventure, romance, political and current events. It has it all. Readers lead spiritual lifestyles rich in wellness activities. They also show strong efforts of self educating and pro-action for current events. This book will be bought and read by those with voids in their lives. My social network fans read my short blog stories and pray for more full length books so they can be inspired to increase their own philanthropic efforts and restore faith and hope for man kind.

Word Count: 100,000+ (400 pages)

Biography: I am special and unique because I have lived the life of the character in the book. I have sold my material possessions, moved into a storage unit, lived in a van, traveled on foot and motorcycle, been around the world, started several companies, founded a Charity and given 80% of my net worth and I do wander the streets as a super hero with my eyes and ears open for people in trouble.

Worthy Mentions: This will be self published 1/2012 if not under contract.

Title: undecided

Subtitle:

Author: TJF

Premise: The USA is overtaken by greed and industrialization of natural resources. The majority of citizens have become pawns to change. The chosen few prophets reborn, walk the country setting examples of change. Here you read about their efforts as seen through the eyes of Saint-to-be Timothy.

Benefits: After completing The Knew Bible, readers will be inspired to create change around them, citing examples from this book to inspire others and be able to use chapters as quick instructional guides. A modern look at the traditional bibles before it is here.

Features: Pages of instructional self help guides and scientific facts and studies will deliver these benefits to the reader. Real life examples and results of Saint-to-be Timothy‘s efforts light the path for all.

Overview: The book is divided into [number] sections and [number] chapters.

The Manuscript Status: 70%

Anticipated Length: 400 pages (100k+ words)

Anticipated Completion:
Material Time Stops: 8/8/11
Manuscript Ready for Publisher editing: 1/1/12

The Market:
Characteristics: The target audience for this book is made up of all people of all ages and types. Strong Christians and other religious folk will read to be reminded of their duties to improve the communities around them. People who have made mistakes in life will read to find inspiration of change. Parents and educational bodies will distribute this book because it represents a fictional view of the concepts of modern life based on the Christian 10 Commandments and solutions to fix their communities mistakes. Activists will purchase this book because of the facts and examples of progress.

Motivations: Religious spiritual types will read because they want to read about all the good deeds and solutions to battle evil. Political activists will read to find contacts and examples of others like them battling their frustrations. Everyone will read to self educate on solutions for all their problems. Nearly everyone desires to live free and sustainably and travel the world like the character of this book.

Affinity Groups: Church and spiritual groups. Educational bodies. Governing organizations.

Differentiation: There is no direct competition because this lifestyle mostly has only survived in Islander, Buddhist and Hindu cultures. This book brings a unique story to readers who have chosen materialistic temptation and need to get back on the true Christian path.

The Author
Background:
Timothy Frentz, born 8/8/1977 in Grand Island NE; Grew up under the guidance of the traditional cultures of his grand parents. A strong Christian childhood etched the 10 commandments into his adult life. He studied English, Indigenous History and Business at the University of Nebraska from 1995-2002.

Summary:

A fictional story of a young man, reborn as a prophet of the creator, who is on a quest to restore the Elders Traditions along his journey to Sainthood. Timothy uses new age resources such as Facebook to direct those who want to help others WITH those who need help. When he spots someone not qualified for Bureaucratic support systems, the Helping Hands Network reaches out to fill in the blanks the best they can.

Living sustainably in the traditional sense means that one is living 100% from resources within their own local location and non reliant upon aid from others. In a more modern sense, sustainable living generally means a family or single residence is using less resources then what is calculated as producible per capita in their area from local resources.

Living a sustainable life comes with sacrifices most Americans do not want to accept.

Most of the world’s civilizations keep their traditions alive by supporting laws made to encourage standards of living that require a bit of “sacrifice”.

Now when I talk about “sacrifices”, I am referring to the act of physically meeting the primary needs of survival with minimal use of technology.

Starting right now as you read this, you need to get your faith back. You once had a dream of creating material wealth without relying on others by means of self employment. Make those dreams reality just like all your ancestors before you. For over 99.9% of the recorded history of man, our elders lived long comfortable lives living sustainably and recent infatuations with industry and capitalism is changing populated societies.

It is easy to live sustainably in rural areas if you follow the guidance of traditionalists like me. I spend my time in rural areas of Maui, East Texas, Nebraska, PA, and California mostly so you will read about sustainability in these areas. Occasionally I end up in other countries as well.

Here are some examples of the sacrifices we make in the USA but that are still considered part of the norm around most of the world.

– Minimize Everything from consumption to waste. The process begins by growing and collecting natural resources. Use/make/buy 1 natural dish each instead of having cabinets full of unused items; wash dishes with home made soap and cold water or solar warm water after each use. Use and make natural products when at all possible. It is amazing how much is made out of hemp. The process is the circle of life so the beginning closely follows the end in time. Meaning, that we reuse as much as possible until the end of the useful consumption life and then we recycle the resources into new things.

– Learn to maintain and maximize the efficiency of what technology you do use. Repair your own vehicles; fix your home appliances; do your own yard work; use one laptop and a mobile smart phone with a satellite connection *(see http://cannonsatellite.com ) or phone data plan; use the laptop for practically everything including tv/movie loading. Do your best to power everything off of renewable energy.

– Travel with mass transit and bikes. For those heroes who sacrifice their lives doing public services and health care, some duties can not be avoided without extreme uses of fuel but for most people in urban areas there is enough fuel wasted to power the rest of the world every HOUR!

These are just a few broad examples of what principles I try to follow as much as possible. Many more specific examples are focused on in follow up articles so bookmark this link and enjoy my many stories.
