Default Temp battery usage

So I have tried charging my Trojan batteries in the 36v pack and they are just not lasting, after charging they barely make the cart move and after about 40ft it is dead.... So my question is I have plans for the cart this comming weekend and I have 6 - 12v battery backup sealed batts at my dispose. If I wire them in as a replacement for this weekend is the drive time gonna be worth doing till I get new batteries?

Bad thing is I just bought a 36v charger in hopes the batteries would still be usable. Now I am stuck trying to figure out what direction to go....

I have been reading up on the 48v swap but unsure of all the items needed and what other problems this swap may have later on in the carts life.

Thanks in advance, rj

First before U do anything else , charge the Batteries, wait 1 hour then
Take a reading of each battery , then across the entire pack post results here !!

DO NOT hook up "I have plans for the cart this comming weekend and I have 6 - 12v battery backup sealed batts at my dispose. If I wire them in as a replacement for this weekend is the drive time gonna be worth doing till I get new batteries."
Otherwise well never be able talk again

What will go wrong if the 12's are wired right? Or you thinking they will "duel" each other? I will try volt test tonight.
