Making 4+2+2 into 6+2 battery bank

ok i am picking up my alfa on Saturday..and i would like to know how to make the battery bank different than it is...right now there is 2 12v batteries for chassis.. and 2 6v batteries for inverter.. and 4 6v batteries for house.. and the charger and wiring of course is set up for this. i would like to know how to wire the invertor and house batteries to one bank. but am wondering if any other wiring would have to be changed as i assume inverter is wired to the two batteries.. or would i just have to trace the inverter supply and tie that into the new bank? i did search but found no diagrams in google or irv2..but maybe had wrong search term..any help??

Are you sure the inverter is separated to the two batteries? Interesting. If so just need to tie the two banks together. The six batteries should all be same type and age.

yes batteries are seperate and the batteries are all new..i didnt understand it at first but reading the manual it does draw for house on the 4 and the inverter on two and actually will use the chassis batteries until voltage hits 12.8
