Trickle Charge

What is the best way to store the house and chassis batteries. I plan to store in a unheated storage barn with the batteries turned off. Should I leave a charger on the chassis and the house? It gets cold here and will be stored until March. Temps get done to 0 often.

Not necessary to charge 24/7. Need to check voltage each battery every couple weeks and recharge to full if necessary. Shut off when back to full charge. Cannot allow them to drop, they will freeze and crack! Done it that way for near 20 years and never had lost a battery. Continuous charging drives water out of them.
