Winter Storage - Disconnect Batteries or not?

So bought an LR3 and decided to store the 90 for the winter...did some searching and so far and came up with this plan:

1 - Filled the tank
2 - Put in Sta-bil and ran the engine for a while before storing
3 - Bought a Battery Tender 2-bank charger


So my questions are:
1 - Do I need to disconnect the batteries (PITA)
2 - The directions say to not hook the negative to the batteries, do to a ground...is this just legalize and CYA or can I clamp on to the NEG terminal on the battery?

Thanks

Yes, for the Battery Tender to work you have to disconnect the ground/negative on the truck battery. You can leave positive connected.

Yes, the neg on the Battery Tender goes on the neg battery post. After you have hooked both Battery Tender cables to the truck battery then plug it into the wall outlet.
