this may help for storage conditions from owners manual

Your motor home is equipped with heavy-duty deep cycle or absorbed glass mat (AGM)
batteries. If the batteries need to be replaced, only deep cycle batteries of the same size and
type should be installed.
Unless a battery has been fully discharged, house auxiliary batteries are normally charged in
one of two ways:
When the power cord is plugged into 120-volt shore power, or when the generator is

operational, the inverter/charger functions as a multi-stage battery charger and will
automatically charge the house auxiliary batteries when required. A bi-directional charge
relay incorporated into the electrical system allows the inverter/charger to charge the
chassis batteries once the house auxiliary batteries are sufficiently charged.
The chassis alternator charging system supplies power to the house auxiliary batteries when

the engine is running and the chassis batteries are sufficiently charged.

I should be good to go as soon as I figure out how to run an extension cord from my house to storage (only 4 miles)! Too bad the inverters doesn't show the chassis battery being charged instead just shows fully charged when house batteries are charged.
