As you can see....I stink at electricity/electrical....and I have the zaps to provide it!
We don't have power in our storage facility, so this was/is my fix (vs. full-on solar on roof).
Yes, just think of the 2 6v batteries as 1 12v battery as long as the 2 6v batts are wired in series. If not sure what series or parallel is please read:
