the 29 hsf has enough room for 4 batteries on the tongue. though i normally have one pulled out for use as a trolling motor battery when not fishing it's hooked up with the others .

I will check the batteries when I get the camper this weekend before I plug in and report back. Most likely on Saturday...FYI
FYI....batteries were indicating 100% on the LED panel this morning after sitting in storage for ~3 weeks (under no useage...).

More juice, lasts longer. Stuff runs on 12V no matter how many batteries you have. 1, 2, 200, 1,000 whatever.

I have FOUR 6V batteries, which just makes 'em last longer than two 12's. Just connect 1 and 2 in series to make 12V and 3 and 4 in series to make 12V and connect the 1/2 to the 3/4 in Parallel as if it were just two 12V's.

Simple as mud.

Why would you want the positive off one and the negative off the other if they are wired in parallel? You can put the load cables on one of the batteries. Just curious.

A battery is defined as two or more CELLS , of approx 2 volts each . Those usually black boxes are just a container for those cells and the liquid . To get twelve volts you could use two " BATTERIES " of six volts or one "battery" of twelve volts or six individual cells .It ain't rocket science , you can stack em what ever fits . I need 24 volts on my boat and use three eight volts to spin my 6-71 Jimmy . I think " battery" goes back to the artillery , one was a cannon or gun , two or more was A " BATTERY "

You take the TT positive off of one battery and the negative TT connection off of the other battery. This forces the current (power) to flow thru both batteries. Power like water will find the path of least Resistance and you want to keep both batteries in the loop at the same state.

I have 4, 230AH 6 volt batteries for a total if 460AH. I run each pair thru a battery selector / cut off. I charge via a magnum inverter / charger (2000w 100A) or 30A controller with 450W of PV panels (3 each). What makes it great is I have the magnum remote and the trimetric TM2030. First thing anyone boondocking will need; otherwise you are running blind
