We depend on electricity in our daily lights. e may rely on electricity, but we take it for granted until we don’t have it. When the power goes out, it seems like life as we know it stops. This is what happened to Josh and Stacy Lemonds.
Josh and Stacy live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. They had been going through a bout of bad luck. The couple who worked together both found themselves unemployed when the company started laying off employees. When the electricity in their home began to malfunction, they thought that things couldn’t get any worse. With the temperature getting colder and colder outdoors, they didn’t know what they were going to do without power.
The problem first started with the heating system. They tried to look at it but had no idea what they were looking at. When the lights started flickering, they were sure that it was an electrical issue. They thought that the problem could have been due to the age of the house. It was built in 1945, and they didn’t think it had been rewired since. It wasn’t long before the electricity on one side of the house was malfunctioning, but working, and the electricity on the other side of the house was out completely.
Since they were religious, they decided to turn to God for help. They were part of their church’s marriage group, so they asked the group to pray for them. They had no money, no way to fix their electricity, and no heat, so prayer was their last hope. They never expected to get the help that they needed so quickly.
Joshua Matthews was part of Josh and Stacy’s marriage group. When his wife got sick, the couple was there to help out. They brought him meals and offered to help around the house while his wife was recovering. Matthew served in the United States Army. He was a member of the 45th Infantry Divison and served two tours in Afghanistan. When his time in the Army was over, he came home and started working as an electrician’s apprentice at Dane Electric. When the couple asked for prayers, they had no idea what Joshua did for a living.
When the couple sent out their request for prayers, Joshua sent them a text message. He told them that he was an electrician and he lived just 10 minutes away. He offered to go over to their house to see if he could figure out what was causing their electrical issues. When Joshua arrived at the home, he realized that there was much more to their electrical problems than they could have imagined. He suggested that they call the Oklahoma energy board for a second opinion. The next day, OG&E paid them a visit.
OG&E found that the couple’s electrical meter was a fire hazard and they had to pull it. The couple couldn’t have electricity until it was fixed. Based on their financial issues, they couldn’t afford to have it fixed. They were devastated. The couple had no heat in the middle of winter and no way to fix the meter. The only good thing was that Joshua had already begun the work rewiring their electrical system.
Joshua made it his top priority to get the couple’s electricity turned back on. It was too cold for the couple to stay in the home, so the first night, they slept in the car. The next night, the church took up a collection to pay for them to stay in a hotel. While Josh and Stacy were staying at the hotel, Joshua worked most nights until midnight trying to repair their electricity. He wasn’t working alone. Christian Harbison, an electrician who works with Joshua at Dane Electric, helped out.
When the work was done, Josh and Stacy worried about how to pay for the work. Joshua told them that they were doing the work for free. They couldn’t believe what they were hearing. Their lights were on, their heat was on, and they didn’t own a penny.
After an electrician made a promise to a couple, they set up a surprise in their living room. To repay Joshua for his work and kindness, Stacy reached out to KFOR-TV News Channel 4 program, Pay It 4ward. They work with First Fidelity Bank to reward selfless acts. Joshua’s boss at Dane Electric sent him back to Josh and Stacy’s house. He thought that there was an issue there, but when he arrived, he saw the local news standing there. They gave him a check for $400 to thank him for his selfless act. To Stacy and Josh, he was a hero.

How to install electric wiring into the walls of a shipping container.
In this video we will show you how to wire a shipping container with Romex® type wire. Wiring is really pretty simple to install. Individual runs can be pushed or slid through the horizontal or vertical chase ways up to 20′ from box to box.
Here is a link to a hot knife supplier: https://www.warehousebay.com/Hot-Knife-Kit-w_Guide-2-and-2-pcs-12-Blade-Material/productinfo/H-KIT2/
1. How to install electric wiring into the walls of a shipping container.
2. Hot knifes are not essential for installation. For more information about specialty tools
3. The stick was used to help set a consistent height for the electrical boxes.
4. The orange tape was used to illustrate the electrical wiring runs and their location in our panels.
5. Preplan all of your electrical cuts. Keep the hot knife…HOT!
6. Save the cutout pieces of foam for use later to replace the electrical box cuts.
7. To keep the wire flat and kink free. We used a turnstile to unreel the 12 gauge Romex wire.
8. We ran the 12-gauge Romex wire behind the PVC water pipe.
9. Keep the glue away from the electrical raceways.
InSoFast panels are designed for use with standard Romex® (NM sheathed wire), MC Flex, AC Flex, or rigid metal conduit.
InSoFast wiring chases are located 1¼” below the surface of the panel (National Electric Code – NEC Article 330-4d and 300-41a) and are designed to keep the wiring safely within the panel without the use of protective metal plates.
Electrical Raceways spacing varies according to the panels you are using. The CX 44 panels typically used along the sidewalls, the raceways are spaced horizontally every 24” o.c. and vertically every 22” o.c. as marked by a reference line on the face of the panels.
The chases for the end walls and the ceilings that use either the UX 2.0 or the EXi 2.5 panels their chases are spaced 16″ and 24″ on center. This offers the same protection as a wire running through the center of a 2×4 wall.
In this video we will show you how to clear obstructions from blocking the wiring chases. And the commonsense tricks like the stick used to help set a consistent height for the electrical boxes.
If you have any difficulties sliding the wire through the chase way, bend over the end of the Romex® wiring. The use of a fish tape is generally not required unless pulling multiple wires at one time. If you wish to eliminate the fish tape, slide one wire through and then tape the multiple wires on. Metal flex conduit, MC Flex, or AC Flex installs in the same manner as Romex wiring.
All of our race ways will meet the E3802.1 for the 1 1/4″ code for depth, installation and support requirements
Wiring methods shall be installed and supported in accordance with all local code requirements.
Hot knifes are not essential for installation. For more information about specialty tools, contact us at InSoFast.

In this video I explain how to replace an electrical outlet. There are many reasons why you’d want to replace an electrical outlet. They sometimes get old and worn out and lose their grip. Sometimes you’re just wanting to upgrade to something that is tamper proof. Either way, this video shows you how just about anyone can replace an electrical outlet.

This video shows how I installed electrical from start to finish, step by step from rough electrical to trim electrical during my basement shop renovation. You can do it yourself like i did, with a little help. This was a Electrical installation in the basement, which now is my work shop.
The electrical installation process was a little stressful for me since I’m terrified of electricity, but to get the shop finished I had to overcome my fears and get it done. I did have some help with this from my father and my electrician Frankie. I hope you guys learn something from this video and please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Last thing make sure you pull a electrical permit and check your local codes. Each city will be different and what I did may not be code in your town.

Green like powder on your battery, terminal, or wires is a bad sign. When engine heat slowly degrades connectors or wires, the plastic turns brittle and allows water to intrude. If this worsens, the corrosion will succumb the circuit. That green like powder will eat the copper or create an arch over time. Wires on or near a hot frame or improperly shielded MAY PRESENT RECURRING, ONGOING, OR REPEATED PROBLEMS.
Using rust neutralizer such as Loctite on connectors or wires will impede the flow of electricity and cause inumerable problems. If you have acid corrosion or rust; take the time to rewire the wiring harness or effective methods that does not degrade the integrity of the electrical circuit, the wiring harness, or the component you are diagnosing.
There are three strategic points. First is at the starter relay. Second is the fuse block. Third is the electrical component and wiring harness connector. These specific points allows you to take measurements and analyze your results. After you analyze the results taken, you should be able to determine what the problem is and how to remedy it.
