Switching from 12 volt to 6 volt batteries

Trying to switch from 12 to 6 volt batteries on my rv. Here are my question. My unit had two 12 volt batteries wired In parallel. There is cabling on both sides of the compartment. One side has standard black red cables. Other side had white and black cables. I am confused about how I can wire the new 6 volts with this cabling. Help

Thanks to everyone. Got it figured out. Very happy to have the better 6 volt batteries. It was different having two sets of cabling. Joined red cables to positive one battery then joined black and white cables on negative on other battery. Then ran cable to join the negative and positive on open terminals. 12 volts.

That's it other than where the negative and positive leads go to the trailer there are two. It works perfectly. Thanks
