Battery Quick Connect

We will be storing out TT at a storage facility. Although it is gated, I think I want to remove the battery while in storage. I have used a quick connect for race car batteries as linked to below. Anyone see an issue in using this for an RV battery?

Winch Power Connector Plug Kit for Quick Disconnect from Battery - Amazon.com

Also, does anyone remove their propane tanks in storage?

I was pulling my batteries so they didn't get stolen with my popup. With my new trailer, I bought these :

Batteries are always good for thieves cause they can either use them or get $20 for the core. Have seen some people chain their propane to the frame but I do not.

I chain up my propane. I'm that guy. On my TT I used to take battery home from storage lot after every trip. The new fiver now has it locked in front compartment so I just leave it and hit the battery disconnect switch.

I've had 2 battery's freeze. One busted the other started pushing acid out upon charge. If not plugged in or on solar charge its probably a good ideal to remove and put on a trickle charge if freezing weather for days is expected. May be another reason besides thievery
