3 motors

Did another run for about 45 minutes using 3 motors again. Using halogen light
for load on battery 3 and adding tail light bulb from time to time. When adding
tail light bulb intensity of halogen would decrease but motor RPM's would increase. Then tried the 3 motors in series instead of parallel. They all ran slower, since all this did was divide the current. Now it seems like I am making battery 3 worse. It only reads about half a volt now. Battery 1 and 2 are down a bit but are recovering. I did the readings right after shutting things down so will check again after a longer resting period.
