09 Fleetwood Icon24A-Leaving it plugged in

As you all are painfully aware, we've been having quite the severe winter. A couple of weeks ago, I went to do my regular "turn-over the RV and run the generator" routine and the chassis batteries were dead.

I plugged into shore power and recharged the coach and chassis batteries and other than the common, quirky "click-no start...click start" issue, the Sprinter turned over fine and ran perfectly.

So, I just phoned Fleetwood Customer service and asked if it's O.K. to leave the RV plugged in all the time in the winter and she said unequivocally, "yes....no problem at all." I then asked if it could be possible to over-charge the battery and she promptly again said, "no, it's fine."

So, other than watching the water levels in the coach batteries, what do you all think ? Just double checking that this is totally fine.

I keep my rig plugged in at all times, never had a problem. Check batteries every couple three months, have added distilled water only once.
