Bill you connect the positive terminal of one battery to the negative terminal
of another battery, and those two batteries equal one 12 volt battery. You will
have one positive terminal( which I will call A terminal), and one negative
terminal(which I will call B terminal) which are not connected to anything, and
these are your new 12 volt positive and negative terminals. Make up four sets
like this. Connect the 4 positive A terminals to each other, and the 4 negative
B terminals to each other just like you do your 12 volt batteries, and then run
this to your battery switch. Use the largest battery cable you can find for all
connections, this is very important. These batteries have a lot of power, and
undersized cable will not let you utilize all that is available. Eric

you will need FOUR 6V batteries wired in series to produce 24V
if you have EIGHT 6V batteries then you have two sets of 4 series wired
batteries wired in parallel to double the AH capacity
the only new wiring would be the series wiring as in the above example
six short piecies of wire
and so on

Eric & John,
I am intrigued by this 6 volt option. I have 12 house batteries.
. I assume that you would divide these into 4 parallel wired sets of
batteries with an output of 6 volts per set.
. Then I assume that you would wire 2 of these sets of 3 in series
producing 12 volts and do the same with the other 2 sets of three.
. Lastly I assume that you wire the 2 12 volt pairs in series to
I guess another option would be 3 sets of 4 wired in a series and then
connect the 3 series-wired sets parallel to produce 24 volts?
I assume that either method will require almost all new wiring? Any
will be appreciated.
