How Are the RV Batteries Connected?

The two house batteries in my motorhome have been removed to be replaced. They were 6-volt batteries but the person who removed them does not remember if they were wired in series or parallel. The motorhome is a 2005 Cross Country. How should the house batteries be wired? Will S., (Seminole, OK)

Will, since all DC electrical components in your motorhome are powered by 12-volt battery power, two 6-volt batteries must be connected in series in order to provide a final, 12-volt output. Here’s another post that may be of help to you. Check this out.

 Also, FMC Magazine published one of my in-depth articles, "The Balance of Power," you might find helpful. Feel free to contact FMCA and request a copy of the January 2012 issue.
