Winterization of the Batteries

As a new M/H owner I was curious that due to the fact that I have purchased this so late in the season I am starting to think of preperation for the winter. One of those things is the onboard batteries (coach/chassis) what does everyone do to prep for during the winter to their M/H ? I normaly put my battery tender to all of my atv and bikes. I wonder if I should do the same, and if so how since the coach alone has 2 batteries how would you wire them up and or do I need a dual bank battery tender for this ? Come on come all share your opinions.

My mh has a smart charger on the converter, so I can leave the thing plugged in all the time, and that takes care of the 3 house batteries. Then I plug in a battery tender type on one of the inside 115v outlets and plug the other end into the cig lighter (I rigged up a cig lighter adapter) to keep the chassis batt charged. Works fine, and none of them boil the water or require adding water.
