2013 batts could be getting towards problems, but do a test. Load testers are not expensive either, check ebay.
FWIW, I have 8Ds. Don`t forget one bad batt in a bank sucks the power out of the good one(s). And if you replace one baddie the new one is better than the other oldies, so you may need to make a judgement there.
+1.
