Coach andchassis battery removal for storage

I have a 2013 Forest River Sunseeker 3010 motorhome. During the winter I want to remove the 2 coach batteries and the engine battery (Ford E450). I want to start the generator and engine during storage can I just install one of the coach batteries and use to emergency start button to start the engine. Will this work or do I need to install all three batteries? I will take them out after I let things run for a while. Thanks

Not a good use of a deepcylcle balttery to start that big V-10. Probably get away with it though.
