Good idea with that size bank. I'd get a hydrometer and compare specific gravity measurements before rotating...if you see them changing to lower in some of the bank...then do the swap of positions. Otherwise, just monitor occasionally when you check water levels.

I know amps are amps but in my experience using my 70 amp triple state charger/converter, it is quicker to get to 90% charge on individual battery banks than when both banks are charged together. After both hit 90%, I then allow both banks to trickle charge the rest.
Regardless, these were my observations when using generator and since I'm mostly solar for me its irrelevant.
