Got the batteries  mounted in the truck 36 batteries total.  :jJ<:

That is 4 packs 9 batteries in each pack, each pack is 270V ie 30V per battery.

Need to do four batteries series 120V (for the Curtis Controller) and will have 9  4 battery groups.

My Oxygen/Acetylene hose burst cause the oxygen regulator kept creeping up
on pressure, I have had this small roof top set for 35 years, guess it is time for
a new regulator and hose got my monies worth out of this set.
All most done with the battery connections.

But does it drive. (I think not)   :HH*:

Lots of work there Ivan. 

I sure wish those cells were available

Think of how many I could have got for $6,300 USD.....
