Winter storage options for batteries

I live in western Wyoming at an elevation of 6900+. What are my best options for my batteries during winter? They are flooded batteries. I think I have an option of plugging my camper during the winter months, but will that keep my batteries charged? Or shall I remove them and buy a trickle charger? My camper is a Stealth 2313.

Don't trickle charge them,,,much better option is to put them on a Battery Tender...research it in here...enough reading material on the subject to give you nausea!

MBart, if you have electricity to plug in to, then you can leave your batteries on your TT. The converter in your TT will keep the batteries adequately charged. I did that last winter and we had a long, cold winter last year in Minnesota. No problems. If you don't have electricity, then you want to remove the batteries and keep a battery tender on them.
