what happens when one cell dies
If you have 2 each 12 volt batteries, and one battery has a bad cell or short, you should still have a full 12 volts in the other battery, provided you catch it early enough to keep both batteries from being drawn down to less than 10 volts. But with 2 each 6 volt batteries, if one battery dies or loses a cell, you would be down to 10 volts or less, and only one battery would only provide 6 volts, not enough to start the generator or run the slide motors. What am I missing? Sure, 2 each 6 volts gives you more amps, but a problem with either battery (or cables) and your voltage might be too low to operate most 12 volt accessories. Help me figures this out, as my 12 volts are getting a little old.
