Help with small battery bank hook up.
I what to hook up the batteries today in my little project. I have 4 golf cart 6 volt bateries I will be hooking togeather in series/parallel (I know how to do that) to run my 12 volt system for lights and pond pumps in the back yard. I will be running 2 sets of wire from the battery set up to th 2 morningstar charge controllers. One controller providing power all the time (eg: PUMPS) and the other to controll the lights on and off the way I want them to. THE QUESTION... When I take power from the battery bank can I take the Pos and Neg legs from the same battery in the bank? AND, should the second set of wires going to the other charge controller be taken from another battery's pos and neg legs? Thanks for the help, I'm getting excited to be so close to "lights on"...
