if tied together...I would think that the bank's absorption and depletion voltage...at any given reading point would be the same...even if the actual battery voltages are slightly different

That is quite possible. Also the tech may have been cautious about over representing the situation.

Caltexflanc: the cabling to the bus bar is about 6-7' from each box, so they are separated by about 12-14', I'm figuring. The boxes are located either side of the engine.

I guess, I could move the start bank to the stbd side and relocate the smaller house box to the port side. That might be possible. But I did look at that site that Clectric referenced in my thread on electrical systems 101, and it becomes somewhat problematic to "cable" a large bank with 10 batteries, optimally so that all batteries contribute equally to electrical draws, and that they are similarly charged equally. In other words, a balanced design. At this point one hopes that the compromises that are often necessary in an electrical system aren't ultimately responsible for premature death of expensive batteries!
