Rotate batteries. Good idea or not?

Last fall I purchased 6 Interstate golf cart batteries - GC2-XHD-S 232 Ah. I have four for house batteries and two for starting. Should I rotate them? the house batteries are the only ones that really get used, my Yanmar starts instantly.

Nope. Not worth the trouble and you're better off keeping the four together since they have had the same use.
