Default winter battery storage

Hey guys; this will be the first winter for my cart(96txt). Seeing it gets below zero here in Michigan,and I'm storing the cart in an unheated barn, whats the best thing to do about the batterys? I hope you don't say take them out and put them in the house. Do you leave them on charger all winter? What about any battery addatives. Are the ones they advertise on line good or junk? Any help would be appreciated.

I would not put any additives. Just maybe throw a blanket over and around them. Charge them once a week. Idk maybe the pros can answer this one.

The batteries must maintain a good charge to not freeze. Ideally you would run it once a month and recharge but since that may not be possible just recharge the pack once every 3-4 week and check the water levels.

Find a quailty battery tender/maintainer. When the batteries are fully charged it will go to a maintenence mode. It will keep them fully charged and add life to them.
