Winter battery storage

We winterized our camper and put it up for the Winter. I usually take the batteries out and put them in the garage on a trickle charger. Some people I know just leave them in the camper until Spring. I am curious what other people do

I pull my battery and put it on a Tender. Part for maintenance, part because I have to store the trailer at a “secure” storage area. The battery has been working good for the past 3 years doing this. We can get temps below 0° F here so figure it’s worth the effort.

Because I have a battery disconnect switch and I also have mine plugged into shore power, when not in use.
Since a charged battery will not freeze until at least -40°F, that would never happen where I live.
