Batteries still charging on 2006 Seabreeze while in storage?

Im putting my 2006 Seabreeze 36 LX in storage over the winter for 4-5 months. My question is how do I keep the batteries healthy?

Should I fully charge them and just let them sit?

Disconnect battery cables and let them sit?

Plug rig into 110 V and keep them on the built-in charger?

If I plugged into 110 V, should I hit the disconnect switch just inside the door to the left?

I appreciate any advice on this.

Disconnect completely after a full charge.

Leave plugged in and disconnect ON. If the battery is disconnected, the battery may not charge.

Just letting them sit may result in dead batteries. Many RVs have things that don't disconnect with the switch.
They leave safety equipment on full time in case your sleeping in it with the disconnect off. They don't want you getting poisoned or burnt up.

To say it again,

Disconnect battery cables and let them sit.

I agree, with one "But..."
But after the batteries were isolated if I had AC power at the location I'd put a Battery Tender across each one. Both Amazon and WalMart carry them. I have a pair of the 3 amp units.
