You need to find out if they are deep cycle batteries and what their chemistry is. If they are lead acid deep cycles then they can often be reconditioned. If not deep cycle then they may not be suitable.
my friends said thay check them with a volt meter and if the volts are under 12volt thay get rid of them im trying to find out if thay are deep cycle batteries or not ill proabley know in a few days he work nights and kinda hrd to catch him
