I pull mine and store in the basement on a battery tender. Winter is very brutal here.

We take our trailer and batteries south for the winter. That works very well. Our boat and tractor batteries are left in place fully charged with no load on them. It gets very cold here in Ontario. We've been doing this for 30+ years with no proble. It is too much pain to carry the boat batteries up from the bilge, down an extention ladder, down the dock and to a vehicle. Charged and no load works great.

Pull battery and store in basement. Throw a charger on it every now and then.

For what it's worth, I used to pull our 4 T-125's, then got tired of trying to figure out how they all wired up in the Spring, so last winter I left them in the trailer, and the trailer plugged in. Didn't have any problem, and it gets pretty cold around here. As long as the batteries have a full charge on them, you should not have a problem either way, even in extreme temp. Otherwise, all our car batteries would be splitting left right and center.

After ruining several batteries with battery tenders, I leave the battery on the trailer, disconnect it, and put a small solar panel on the jack to maintain a trickle charge. It's been three seasons now on the same battery, and it's fully charged in spring when we return to the seasonal.

I pull mine, store it on a wood block in the garage, and charge it occasionally.
