Over the years he has shown how he gets by in the Utah desert living in a trailer without the need for all mod cons.

In one post he revealed just how he managed to survive without spending any money on bills.

His secret is solar panels.

In the short footage he said: “I take the solar panel and I set it out… so it looks something like that.”

The clip shows a couple of solar panels set up in the sand, facing the sun.

Bob adds: “I adjust it to point to the sun and I take the cord and I take it over to the battery pack and I plug it in.”

The meter on the battery pack shows it is running at 26 per cent, producing 69 watts merely from using the sun.

The film then cuts to show Bob holding up a light.

He says: “And for my main source of light at night is this little guy here.”

Bob explained that he kept that charged is by fixing it to a smaller solar panel which he says keeps him “lit up at night”.

He did add though that if the sun isn’t shining he then “dramatically decrease the amount of power I use to save enough power till the next time the sun is shining”.

The clip has been something of a hit on the social media platform, notching up more than 7,00 likes and generated over 100 comments.

Many commentators weighed in with their own titbits of advice or queries about the equipment.

Others just praised Bob’s lifestyle, with one saying: “Bob, you make me proud.”

Another wrote: “Following so I can learn. Thank you for your knowledge.”

While a third said: “Something about your videos feel so wholesome, I love off grid living and your videos are very interesting.”

Meanwhile, a couple now live off grid in a luxury shed they bought for just £5,000.

Elsewhere, a woodland community in Somerset has just been hailed for its off-grid benefits.

Another isolated traveller told of surviving on rainwater, while a young environmental worker has set up home in a £200 wagon.

A family quitting city life for a new base in Lancashire woodland have also explained how they’ve done so.

And a DIY whizz told how he now lives full-time in an old school bus converted into a home with its own shower and kitchen.
