Can you run the generator to charge the batteries?

I screwed up. There is only 2 sets of cables coming off the batteries. all 4 cables are attached in different places. The previous owner tried to take good care of this RV, but every time he took it in he got ripped off. They would charge him for things that they never touched. I saw the bills and I saw crappy work that they did.
He had the batteries replaced about a year ago. When I got it I noticed that I could not slide the drawer all the way out because the cables would bind. I moved some of the cables and now I'm thinking that they had installed them not as they removed them and maybe when I moved them, they might not be in the right place.
Can somebody send me a diagram of how they should be hooked up

I charged the batteries and checked them. 4 of the 6 batteries have a weak cell. If I have to replace them what should I replace them with? Right now there is interstates in there and I believe they are about 1.5 years old.
Here is a drawing of my battery hookup.
