I think you still have 226 amp hours.

1 amp @ 12 volts for 226 hours

Or

226 amps @ 12 volts for 1 hour

Generally speaking, you want to keep your use to 50% of total capacity , or 113 amps

Thanks. Then I'm guessing they just don't make 12 volts batteries with that many AH and this is why the preference is to use 2 6 volts.

Yes, the 6 volt batteries are preferred for that reason.

Sharko, the 6-volt vs. 12-volt controversy is a never ending one. The 6-volt batteries seem to be constructed to last longer than the 12-volt. check this thread.

http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fu...pging/1/page/1

Each of my 4 batteries are 220 amp hours (AH). When two 6-volts are in series you do NOT double the AH. All told I have a bank of 440AH in a series-parrallel set up.
