    Mine was three string of two 6 volt batteries in series. Then parallel to the inverter and controller. Now I'm 24 volts.

    You need to create three, 12 volt batteries by series wiring two 6 volt batteries together, then treat them as three 12 volt batteries. like the picture except adding one more series pair.

    ok I'm getting there if I understand right you are going to a bus bar or a single point from there to the inverter, charger connect to the single point as well
