With the two six-volt batteries... wire them in series... [1+ 1-]---[2+ 2-] ... with 1- and 2+ connected together, you've got one 12-volt battery from 1+ to 2-. Put your 12-volt charger from 1+ to 2-, hook up + and - from where you had them on your old battery to 1+ and 2- ... no need to change anything to six-volt.

As long as you keep 1- and 2+ connected ONLY to each other.

Pictures always help me. It is pretty simple tho.




When I hear Mule talk wiring, I get this in my head.



I'm glad he understands it and is able to walk me through basic stuff tho.

"Do not touch any of these wires"

But yeah, follow that first pic. Two 6v in series = one 12v.
