    Below is a collection of quick reference diagrams on hooking up multiple 6 volt and 12 volt batteries to create 6V, 12V, 24V, 48V etc as required for energy storage systems commonly found in residential and off grid solar, hydro and wind systems. These systems are also common in RVs which meshes with a project I'm currently gearing up for: Repalcing my single 12V battery with 4 6V Trojan T-105 RE batteries and replacing my Converter with an Outback 2812 Inverter / Charger. More Power, more energy.

    12 Volt & 6 Volt Battery Diagram
    (You should be able to figure it out via the below diagrams)


    Both of the installations below will give you the desired 12 volt output needed
