in series.

connect your TH cables, one to one batt ground , and one to the other batt hot, then in between connect ground to hot on the batteries, wala 12 volts

I would say do the 6volts in series too. and buy the batteries at costco so when they die again you just go back to costco and they wont argue about the return or any prorate crap and you get brand new batts again.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

Just a few more questions.
-Does these 2-6 volts batts in series affect my factory charging system or will they charge the same?
-How much do they run in comparison to standard RV/marine type batts?
-Does anyone have any pics of the batts run in series?
Thanks.

Sweet, thanks for the help. Are 6v batts pricey?

6 volts are by far the best thing to do. I have had 2 trailers and put them in both. The Costco ones are about $70 ea. but well worth it. Check out this link for the install.

Thanks man. I just took my trailer over to storage and there were completely dead. No juice to even lift the the Atwood jack up off my truck.
Looks like I am off to Costco tomorrow.

On a side note...is there a tool to manually operate the Atwood?
