It will work correctly as it is wired. On these forums, lots of folks will debate the minutia of details :-) When batteries are wired in parallel only, there is an advantage when having power and ground connections at opposite ends of the battery bank, although it is very slight. Many of us like to tinker and even a very slight difference is worth a good deal of trouble, if nothing else....just to say "this is the best way to do it"!
Suit yourself, with a two battery parallel bank, I doubt you would ever notice a discernable difference in performance. More importantly, familiarize yourself with capacity of your bank and at what level are healthy for your batteries. For instance...12.1 volts is the lowest you ever want to deplete a lead acid volt level to....this equates to 50% of your power and is the low limit before irreversible damage will begin to limit the life of your batteries.
