How many people pull their batteries

I just bought my 297bhs this year so it will be my first winterizing. How many of you guys pull your battery? I heard pulling and putting in your garage, but my garage is just as could as battery box. I work in there from time to time and turn the heat on. Do I still need to pull it?

Thanks

I disconnect my batteries and put them in my basement when I'm done camping for the season.

I pull mine, store it on a wooden skid off the concrete floor in basement or garage, and charge it monthly.

I have batteries freeze and split before. I've learned my lesson.

I pull mine and put them in the basement on wood blocks. So far they have held up well with an occassional charge over the winter.

Oh, and a side note: if charging, watch that the charger is doing it properly, and not over charging, this can cause evaporation, and then gases and not just split, but explosion!
This just occurred with a generator battery here at work!!
