Looks like you have more room above your batteries than I do. I tried all sort of tricks and finally decided that the aggravation was not worth it. It cost me $135.00 altogether, but I'm happy now! There is no boil over or other mess and filling the batteries is easy now. Here is what I got. You have to order 2 of them plus the squeeze bulb filler thingy.

RV Battery Watering System - $50.99

I have the pro fill watering system in my trailer, with the 6 volt batteries the same as you, and I find it works great. It fills the batteries to exactly where you need to and no more.

Thanks for all the replies. I think with the tight space where the batteries are I will go with one of the watering systems.

I think you mean series-parallel for your bank of four 6-volts

Output for your inverter should be 110v.

I don't think the two pairs that are wired in series are then paralleled to to increase capacity. One pair is for the house system and the other pair should be dedicated to the inverter to power the fridge... I also noted that the newer 36 CKTS have a different inverter in a different location than my late model 2012.

Ah. That's what I get for assuming it was a typical four 6-volts as one bank. Mea culpa.
