why not take a single sla and single flooded and try them in parallel,
measure [individually] currents into appropriate loads and find discharge curves
to foresee any problems.
if they are 12V units they have multiple cells in series already and i suppose
you therefore dont need to add more batts in series for a good prediction of
what will happen in the real [multiple batts] case.
good luck
