I get it now

(and I didn't even drink anything tonight).

So, the top illustration from the 12volt side would be better represented as this...

I understand the advantage of using two 6 volt batteries in series but I don't understand how the converter can recharge/maintain the batteries. Does the series wiring also halve the input voltage of the converter to charge the 6 volt batteries?

No. From a power standpoint, it helps if you think that a "bank" of two 6-volt batteries that are wired in series is the same as one 12-volt battery.

When charging, the converter "sees" only one 12-volt battery.

Does anyone have a picture showing 4 6 vold golf cart batteries actually installed in a Cedar Creek 36CKTS? CC suggested I do this but two dealerships have told me there is not enough room.

mecapeman,

You can measure the box and compare to the size of the batteries.

In this thread, Who installed 4 GC2 Batteries in their 36CKTS? the 36CKTS was not originally built with a residential refrigerator and the battery box was not big enough for 4 GC2 batteries.

The pictures I have seen, the GC2 batteries in a 36CKTS sit side by side, right to left, 4 in a row.

I measured the battery compartment on a 2015 36CKTS with a residential refrigerator. It was about ~28-3/4" W x ~11" D .
