MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE
I upgraded my RV’s 12 volt battery bank to 450 amp hours using four 6 volt deep cycle AGM batteries ordered from Amazon.com. I connected the four 225 Ah 6 volt batteries using a series parallel configuration. Each pair of batteries are connected in series, then the pairs are joined together in parallel. The result is a 12 volt battery bank with plenty of capacity to power an RV or small off-grid tiny home for a couple days depending on your needs.

CONNECTING BATTERIES in PARALLEL (two 12 volt battery pairs)
(HOW) Connect positive output terminal on battery pair A to positive on battery pair B. Connect negative terminal on battery pair B to negative terminal on battery pair B.
(RESULT) Output voltage remains the same (12V) and Amp Hours are added together (doubled)

How To Connect A Battery Charger To A Car – The Correct Way
Batteries, that can have water added, can be dangerous if they are charging or you are just taking the charger off the battery in a car. The fumes from the battery acid is explosive. So it is very important to not create sparks around a battery. Always plug the battery charger into the wall last when hooking it up. Unplug it first when disconnecting.
