I'm not saying they will burn immediately, but they WILL burn. On another note, the motor will be just fine!
Ok, so under the guise of "no such thing as a dumb question", lets say I added 3 more 12V batteries, and hooked them in tandem (like having 3 sets of dual 12v batteries.. i.e diesel pickup truck). Would there be a downside? Im still 36V but double the capacity..

To be honest, if I am able to save $700 or $800 by just adding 3 more $80 batteries I am all about that. I am sure I am not the first guy to consider such rediculiousness!

Then I can add the 1.5kw inverter I just took from my RV, with charging circuit and all, add it in and install a keg-erator on a trailer! Now I'm thinking!!

The factory uses 6-6v GOLF CART batteries (36v carts) because they provide the best range and lifespan over ANY OTHER combinations. Any other arragement will render the cart less than optimal. "You can pay me now, or pay me later...."

Gorno is right. Using car batteries will never get you the performance of 6 cart batteries. Car batteries being drained and charged like that you will be lucky to get 6-12 months. Where as the cart batteries you will get a stronger pulling cart, longer run times and the batteries usually last around 5 years. I know it's not an expense any one likes paying but do it right the first time and reap the benefits. It will make a night and day difference. As for the kegorator why not just hit up some local classifieds and grab a cheap small generator. Few years back my father bought one from harbor freight for dirt cheap and it's still running for him. And I might steal your kegarator on a trailer idea (insert generic evil laugh here). Good luck and glad it's running now.
