Jayco 12 volt battery to two 6 volt batteries

Hi all, I sure enjoy learning from all of your input. I have a Jayco 30Z. It came with one 12 volt battery. I am replacing that with two 6 volt batteries. How do I connect the cables to these batteries? There is one cable currently connected to the negative post on the 12 volt battery and there are 3 cables connected to the positive terminal on the 12 volt battery. The attached picture is of the original 12 volt hookup.

No picture BTW.......you will simply pick one positive terminal on one of the 6 V batteries and put all your positive cables there, then pick one negative terminal on the other battery and that is where the negative cable goes........then you will add a new cable which connects the unused positive and negative on each battery, this last cable is basically creating a 12V battery out of the (2) 6V batteries
