Welding hitch...what to disconnect

On my hitch there is a 2" square trim ring that needs to be welded back on. Is disconnecting the batteries enough to protect the electronics?

My coach came with a warning tag ; from Allison ; to disconnect the Allison ECM , even if batteries were disconnected ; before any arc welding .

This is for the 3000 series , but wouldn't hurt for the 1000 series .

Also, place your ground clamp as close to the weld joint as possible.
