Re: voltage problem Bubba The Bus Tech 11-2-16  
I bet I know why

You originally had 6 volt starting batteries wired up to make a 12 volt system.

Now you have 12 volt batteries wired the same way so you have wired your batteries in series.

Review the wiring. All batteries should be positive to positive and negative to negative.

You will find you are missing a couple of cables to make it work

Good Luck
