Clueless,
It's possible that it might run that way. I haven't tried it. It's the potential difference you're trying to use here, so you have to have ENOUGH of that to get the motor to run, and the minute battery three (or two in your case) starts to accept charge, that difference will go down fast. I have small 12 volt motor I could try that with, but I won't get back down to the basement until Monday. I DO know that the motor speeds up when loads are placed on battery 3 without drawing MORE current from batteries one and two, at least according to my gauges, and I think others have seen the same thing. It should be interesting anyway.
