Need Battery Advice

On my Class A CLIPPER, I have 4 x 6 volt deep cell Trojan batteries, wired in for the 12 Volt House batteries.

Over the years of testing, I have found I have to rotate these batteries twice annually to allow them to have equal charge.

Each set of two 6 Volt will show the one closest to the positive input cable as having a higher charge.

OK, I now have this problem and question on my SHOPRIDER FLAGSHIP SCOOTER!

This is a 24 Volt system with 2 x 12 volt deep cycle gel cell batteries. The 24 volt charger always charges the left side battery first and then shuts down before the right side battery is at full charge.

I switch batteries and this continues to happen.

The charger runs through some controller and each battery has only the 12 volt leads to the controller.

Can I wire the two 12 volt batteries together so that the controller might be restrained from shutting down until both are charged fully by the 24 volt charger?

Photos attached:
Well, seems I have not paid my dues and no photos will be allowed to load.
I think this is the end of my input and use of this site. My Airstream days are probably over after this season, as my body just won't put up with the demand as both knees are gone, and etc. etc.

You do not need a paid account to post pictures.

Sounds like you need a smart charger or a BMS. You could call Electric Vehicle Parts in Utah and ask for what would solve these problems.
