4 6volt bateries

I have a 2004 Discovery 39L with 4 6volt house batteries, which I am replacing. However, I took out the batteries and didn't make a wiring diagram. Before I make the connection. can anyone tell me the proper way to hook these batteries up?

Whoops
If you don't get a diagram I think I've got a picture of my batteries.

What I do when changing cranking or house batteries, label the batteries 1 through 4 and label the wires with duct tape and a sharpie. Then you will know where battery #1 pos. and battery #1 neg. and so on....

Some of these guys will get you a diagram ASAP I feel sure

Couple of diagrams here (Battery Bank Wiring Diagrams - 6 Volt - 12 Volt - Series and Parallel | Survival Monkey Forums).

Good luck!!
