I stored our Redwood for 4 years in the coldest of Colorado inside a storage garage by just disconnecting the batteries. Montanas the same way 10 years before that. I never had a dead battery in the spring. They always had enough charge to run slides, jacks, etc.

If you do decide to use the storage area outlet - don't set yourself up to fail. Their outlet could trip at any time and go unnoticed for months. It may be a GFI, and you don't really know what else is on it. A guy may pull up and try to run a space heater on one in the same circuit. Put a battery tender on the batteries, but still disconnect the batteries so if the outlet does trip your batteries won't be on a drain.

Because its too complicated to disconnect batteries now on our motorhome, I had to go to something different. The 15A storage unit outlet won't power our unit (trips the GFI), so I shut off the masters and use BatteryMinder brand chargers. They have worked great for us. If the breaker trips, My batteries will survive a few months without charge, but not much longer because the cables are connected.
