Battery String Multiple Voltages

My coach has 8 6 volt batteries hooked in series/parallel to supply both 12 and 6 volts (for dim lights). I’m in the middle of installing solar panels that would make more than 100 amps at 12 volts. I have the Magnum PT100 solar charger which can output up to 100 amps at 12 volts up to hundreds of volts but only at 100 amps no matter what the voltage. The question comes down to can I wire the PT100 to the batteries in series or series/parallel to output either in 24 or 48 volts while maintaining the 6 and 12 volt output to the coach?
