    I have two 12v motors and one 12v battery.

    I need to switch these motors between series & parallel. I'm hoping I can do
    it with a DPDT switch but I can't seem to figure out how to wire it. Can
    anyone point me to a wiring diagram for this?

    Thanks. I switched from electronics to computer programming back in 2000 and
    it seems that i've forgotten how to think trons...
