well...i was told by a friend of mine that running two deep cycle 6 volts to make a 12 volt, and then doing it the same so you get three 12 volts gives you a better charge cycle. last longer. im not sure. i asked a few dealers and they seemed to think that you could run everything off a single 12 volt battery.

ie. this camping senario....dry camping for a week plus days (with a generator) running lights, and other 12 volt items off the single battery.

to me thats taking a chance being if u use lights at night and running some 12 volt systems like my entertainment area off a 2000 watt inverter would drain a single battery pretty fast.
im not a expert in electical currents and such so i could be wrong. lol

my current setup on my TT (non flagstaff) is dual deep cycle 12 volt batterys for main use. i am also running a 2000 watt inverter currently that will transfer to my new TT. a third on the electrical brake system (break away).

i dont know how many batterys are you guys running? i figured you can never have to many batterys on hand....i figured id wire in three main batterys and a fourth for break away...think thats to crazy?
