the TM has a 12 volt marine batt and the 2 six volts are for cranking should I reverse them and use the 2 trojon 6 volts for the TM and the 12 volt for cranking

or leave them alone

If the marine battery is a deep discharge or deep cycle battery, leave it on the TM. This motor will draw a moderate amount of power all day long, and standard batterys do not do that very well.

The 6 volt Batts are probably cranking batterys and should be used for starting the motor. A cranking battery is designed to deliver a lot of current for a short period of time, and then be recharged by the alternator. Deep discharge batterys are always (?) labeled as such. If it doesn't say DD, then it is a cranking battery.
