Battery diagram for 1994 suncruiser

I just purchased a 1994 Itasca Suncruiser However there is only one deep cycle battery for the house and engine start. Does anyone have a diagram of how the 2 house batteries and 1 engine start up battery should be connected ? Right now everyting is working off the 1 house battery. Any help is appreciated. Thx ahead of time.

My first MH was '97 Suncruiser. The batteries were under the steps. The engine start battery is connected in a conventional manner just like a car. The two house batteries are connected in parallel to produce 12v. I was able to just barely fit 4 deep cycle 6volt batteries in the footprint of the two 12volt house batteries. That improved my amp hour capacity for the same space. If any of this is "greek" to you get help so you don't damage anything.

Thanks George R. . I just wasn't sure and didn't want to damage any thing since this MH has really had good care and only has 35,000 miles.
