How do I connect my Smart Shunt to monitor my 4x 6V batteries (2 serial and then 2 parallel)

I searched everywhere but could not find any information for my battery configuration which is a fairly common for RV. Please see below. My RV has 4 x 6V batteries and I do serial for 2x6V to get 1x12V and then I do parallel to get 2x12V.

My question is: if I want to monitor the battery charge of my both "12V" batteries, which positive should I connect the power cable from AUX to? I already connected VBatt+ to the positive of my 1st "12V". Currently I connected AUX to the positive of 2nd "12V". Is this correct? Please see my wiring diagram below.

Thank you!

You have to look at your battery pack as one battery with only one positive and one negative connection.
You can't measure the voltage of the "2nd battery" it is always the same as the "1st battery".
