Removing Batteries for Winterization

A Berkshire has a inverter that will maintain batteries at a safe level. This is not a problem to do it in this way.
Not all Moho's are equipped that way so it's best to check with your dealer to make sure that you are not doing damage.

That's either what I said or meant to say.

No problem. I was just adding the info about the Berkshire and a suggestion to check with their dealer. There are several different setups and as you said you can fry several hundred dollars in batteries.

Seems we agree! I mention it because sometimes people see something and think, "oh, I'll do that." People like me!

I store inside and just disconnect the negative cable at the battery. There is always battery when I pick it up. I can't use a trickle charger where I store.
