Battery Changeout Question

The travel season will end for us next month and begins again in March. Been thinking about my batteries that I want to replace next spring as they are 7 years old this month. Now that we have the Samsung fridge up and running I want fresh batteries to start next season. Once we make our last trip of the year next month I'm thinking about removing them as I see no need to maintain them any longer.

Is there a downside to removing the 4 house batteries and 2 starting batteries while the coach is stored for the winter? I have always kept it hooked to my 50 amp service in its garage but I would not think that would be necessary or advisable without batteries.

Well you won't be able to exercise the gen or the engine or anything at all while the batteries are completely out. You'd also not be able to move the MH in an emergency. Other than that won't hurt anything.

Makes me feel a little stupid as I hadn't given any thought to starting the generator or motor, if needed. Looks like not such a good idea just so I could save a few bucks on the electric bill. Think I will leave them in.

I believe those that park their rigs in storage lots often pull their batteries, so it's a common thing to do, but since you mentioned it being in your garage through the winter, I figured you weren't one to normally do that.
