Question for Pro-Fill/Qwik-Fill users

Just got my two Pro-Fill RV-2000 kits from Amazon to install on four 6V batteries. I notice Pro-Fill assembly directions suggest that four batteries can be conneted for feed from one main fill line HOWEVER the Qwik-Fill RV-2020 box suggests that "up to three" batteries can be connected and filled at same time. Don't most of you use one main fill line for all four batteries? Not that it would be that much trouble to have two fill lines, I just thought I had read that majority are using only one main line.

Bill

It may not be recommended but I connected all 6 house batteries to one fill line and it is working fine.

I thought Kwik fill was for 12v batteries and Pro Fill is for 6v batteries.
6v batteries have 3 cells per battery where as 12v batteries have 6 cells per battery . This might account for the 3 battery limitation as there are more cells. The caps are also different

I should have been more specific. I bought 3 pro fill kits and used them to connect 6 6v batteries. Each kit has manifolds for 2 batteries.

Harry, you are correct. I contacted Flow Rite and the statement of up to three batteries was referring to three 12V batteries. All is well.

I bought them because on my RV with four six volt batteries the batteries the two farthest back are hard to get to and almost impossible to see the fluid level. I bought one set to fill those two batteries and liked it so much that I bought another set (sounds like a paid advertisement, no? but it's not) and I do top off all four at the same time.
