Default Battery and propane tank issues

I just took ownership of a 2021 GS 199RK. I go to remove the battery to store on a minder for the winter and wow, getting it off of the trailer is a chore. You have to loosen the propane tank and either take it off completely or lean it as far as you can forward to remove the battery behind it. Has anyone come up with a hack in order to resolve this issue?

We have 2021 GS 197BH with the same issue. Only solution (plus only room for a single battery) I’ve come up with is to relocate the battery storage area. I decided to just leave as is..

Any hack you do will simplify it for a thief?

Battery on my pop up was wide open for any thief so I am not worried about that. Thanks
