I too keep my batteries in my garage when I don't use the RV for an extended period (over a week). I keep them connected to a Battery Tender. This worked great for my winter storage too. Just keep an eye on the H2O levels.

i've had two 12v deep cycle batteries on my Roo, for 7 years and have never had to take the batteries off, because i installed a battery cutoff switch.

all i do, when i'm getting prepared to go, is that i turn off the cutoff switch and hook up the shore cord to home power.

my batteries, during 4 months of winter storage, have never gone below 75% because of the cutoff switch.
