Battery (Non RV)

Here's a non-RV subject. My fishing boat has two batteries. One is very accessible, but the other the other got stuffed into a compartment making it crazy difficult to get out. I've heard that leaving batteries out in the cold through the winter can shorten their lives. My question is, if I leave a battery conditioner attached to the problem battery through the winter will this prevent them from freezing?
Thanks,

Jim

Yes, and if you can, also disconnect one of the two wires going into boat; this way there will be no draw. And by the way, it is not so much battery life is shorten, it is mostly that a discharged battery will freeze and crack and leak.
