Depending on the space available, physical dimensions of the battery you are replacing and its amp hour rating; you may want to wire three 12v batteries in series (or if you have the room, six 6v batteries). On one battery, you should have one Positive + (usually red) terminal to connect your Positive + (Red) cable from your equipment to and the other terminal (Negative - Black) would jumper to the Positive of the second battery. From the Negative terminal of the second battery, jumper to the Positive terminal of the last battery, leaving the Negative terminal for your equipment Negative - Cable (Usually Black) to connect to. All jumpers between batteries must be the same size wire as the equipment cables to carry the amperes of the equipment load (Usually a motor).

My golf cart has six, 6 volt batteries connected in a chain, positive to negative throughout. Can I connect an auxiliary light of some type to this power source?

the cart is wired for 36 volts operation so you would need a 36 volt bulb
you could put the wiring for a 12 volt bub across the terminals of 2 batteries so the negative wire will be on a negative terminal of the first battery and a fused positive wire will be on the positive of the second battery
the batteries are connected in series so the sum total of the voltage is the sum of all of the batteries
by selecting 2 batteries in series you are using the sum voltage of 2 batteries

No of course not.

The charger has to be the same as the battery it is charging. On BIG batteries, it also has to have the power to handle the higher amps as well.

    How do I connect three 12-volt batteries to get 36 volts?

    Lets number the batteries to simplify... B1-B2 andB3. Connect a cable from B1,negative, to B2 positive. B2 negative to B3 positive. Now you will have 36 volts by using B1 Positive and B3 negative. Also you can get the same voltage using 6 six volt batteries, the result will be a longer lasting charge, aka, drive further. Hope this helped.

    Need to wire up 3 batterys on 83 fleetwood rv

    If its a twelve volt system than you will wire them in parallel. This means that the all the positives will be connected to each other and all the negatives will be connected to each other. If this is a 36 volt system you will wire them in series. This means you will wire the first battery positive to the vechicle and the negative to the second batteries positive. The second batteries negative will go to the third batteries positive. The third batteries negative will go to the vehicle. This will give you 36 volts.

    How do i hook up the 3 12 volt batteries for 36 volts

    Not sure why you need 36V but here's how.

    Bat 1 Bat 2 Bat 3

    You basically string them together. If you put a voltmeter on each end of the group you should have 36 volts or near it depending on the charge of the batteries.

    36 volt battery won't charge

    Get a voltmeter and check for the output voltage of the charger. Should be greater than 36 volts. Also make sure that the voltage is getting to the battery via connectors. Just be careful around lithium batteries - they can blow up of short circuited!!!!!

    Diagram of 36 volt hookup for trolling motor, i have a factory 24 volt wiring in my boat and I need to turn it into a 36 volt please help thank you

    To get 36 volts, number batteries 1 thru 3. connect pos 2 to neg 1, connect pos 3 to neg 2, connect pos 1 to trolling motor controller and neg 3 to ground on trolling motor.
    This is only a solution for 3 battery system.
    For 4 battery system, connect 4 to 3 pos to pos and neg to neg.
