I just found this forum and figured it could be the right place to ask for  
opinions and ideas about the setup I came up with.  I found a lot of info o
n forums like this and YouTube, and I'm pretty good at electrical and wirin
g. It took me about 2 years to get to this point so I wanted to see what ev
eryone thought.

Is that a 12 volt system with 6 sets of batteries in parallel??

 Yup, for now... but I do plan on getting a 24v inverter and adding 4 more panels I have.  The 24v stuff is a lot more expensive.

Tell me how you connected the batteries.

Like this?

Pos + -----> Bat1 ------> Bat2 -----> Bat3 -----> Bat4

Neg - -----> Bat1 ------> Bat2 -----> Bat3 -----> Bat4

Or Like this?
Please be sure you connect your batteries in this manner:

Pos + -----> Bat1 ------> Bat2 -----> Bat3 -----> Bat4

              Bat1 <------ Bat2 <----- Bat3 <----- Bat4 <----- - Neg

Connecting your batteries in this manner will insure that you charge &  
discharge all your batteries evenly.

You also want to discharge your batteries in the same exact manner.

Input Pos + -----> Bat1 ------> Bat2 -----> Bat3 -----> Bat4 + Output Pos

Output Neg - <----- Bat1 <------ Bat2 <----- Bat3 <----- Bat4 <----- -  
Neg Input
