It it's very possible, the problem lies in the charging. The OBC has no way of knowing how much power is being used in those batteries so it charges only what it knows what was used thus eventually the two batteries will die before the rest.

So I guess my question is is it OK to run the lights off 16 volts? If I just have to replace bulbs every once in a while that's ok with me.

If you only use the lights say once a month to get home after dark. You would be just fine leaving it the way it is. On the other hand if you intend to use them much more than that, you need a 48-12 volt reducer.

This ^^^

Better to do the right thing for your battery pack. Plus, by adding a reducer and a fuse block, you can add additional accessories. (And trust me, you will add other accessories... LOL)
