I have the solar power upgrade. With the battery disconnect, my understanding is the system will keep the batteries charged. Am I OK leaving my batteries in this state during winter or is it still better removing them and keeping on a maintainer at home?

You won't know til you try it. We did last Winter,(for about a month) seemed to work ok, but got to be a pain keeping them clear.

I have always taken the batteries out of my unit and kept them in the garage. About every 30-45 days I would run the charger to top them off. On a Battery Tender do you need one for each battery or can you change them off every 30 days or so?

"change them off every 30 days or so?" That's a good question. My answer is "yes." I've only got one Battery Tender but several battery things that overwinter in garage ... a big generator, extra car, motorcycle, Airstream battery, etc. I just go from one to the next - when the Battery Tender reprots that it's happy with the battery, I go to the next battery as soon as I think about it / remember to do so. If I forget for more than a few weeks, I top off the battery with a larger charger. Seems to work for me. YMMV.
