2019 Chevy Volt LT long term storage

We just got our 2019 Volt LT
Just trying to find out what others do for long term storage.
Say 3 months in the winter. Car will be in a partially heated garage.
The manual says to discharge the high voltage battery to 2-3 bars and not to plug in the charger.
But to trickle charge the 12 volt battery.
It seems like the high voltage battery would be completely dead after 3 months is that good for it?
Thanks for any help.
This is my first electric of any kind so new to this stuff.

Leave it plugged in!

A well known problem dating back years, including the first Tesla roadster. The battery turns into a “brick” if stored long term w/o a charger plugged in.
