Wiring Sequence to hook up 2 x 6 volt battery pack to your 12 volt trailer battery

Because every year I forget, and have to stop and figure this out, I am posting it here for everyone's reference.

I have 2 six volt batteries, deep cycle, in a box, and I connect this to the 12 volt A/S battery, which by the way is all connected to a solar system (I love Solar!)

The wiring sequence is as follows:
Negative (black) comes from the Airstream 12 volt battery, attaches to Negative post on 6 volt Battery#1.
Posative (red) goes from 6 volt Battery#1 to Negative (black) post of 6 volt Battery#2
Posative (red) goes from 6 volt Battery#2 to Posative (red) of 12 volt Airstream battery.

That's it!
Thanks All,
Toby J. H.
