relocating aux batteries

prior owner extended battery cage,which held one 12v, so now it will hold 2 6v also. Problem is, there is door access to only the original 12v. I crawl under rv to access the 2 6v, which are taller, and no room hardly to remove or maintain them. These 2 6v are located just below my bench seat at the table. I would like to mount them under the bench seat in the rv. The other option, I guess, would put in a wider access door on the outside. I don't know what an RV center would charge to make another door.

Older 5 ton trucks had two 12 volt batteries under the step, you had o pull out the first one, then slide the second one over into the opening.

My question though is what maintenance do you feel you need to do and how often?

Thank you for your response. I have a 1999 Majestic 4 winds, V10, 29'. My maintenance would be to check fluid level and corrosion. I can barely see the tops of the 6 v's when installed. I hadn't thought of sliding out the house battery, then sliding the other two out that way. Duh The RV is being stored in a facility with no electric hookup. Would I need to remove all three batteries during non-use (winter), or can I, once a month, run vehicle for a bit to keep batteries from dying? I'm just trying to find the proper way to put RV in storage. Thanks again Murf.
