Please help me connect these batteries correctly and reach my inverter TARGET = 1000WATTS.
My current setup only gives me 600W-630W. And where would i connect a generator?
Here is what my current setup looks like with four batteries outside and five inside.



and before you say "you cant put that gel one there dude!"
and i will say "prove it knucklehead"
