Two 6 volts in series will charge the same as one 12 volt and should be charged this way so they are equally charged. Make sure you keep the water level up to normal level, if your old charger normally goes to zero at full charge then it should do the same with the 6's, but it would be best to disconnect the charger, let the batteries set for a couple hours then test with a meter to determine full charge.
