is it the modules that are susceptible and would pulling the 2 fuses(28, 40) be a good idea when jumping or storing?
The key is to avoid electrical arcing (anywhere in the system). That can cause issues with the computer modules. It's rare but it happens.

So if you're jump starting, changing the battery, replacing or cleaning battery cables, etc., Mike Moro (Simple Engineering) recommended pulling the RDM fuse (#28), the TBC fuse (#40) and the RDM relay (#01) - all located in the interior fuse box behind the passenger seat. You'd want to lower the windows slightly (or fully) beforehand as they won't be able to index down to clear the upper rubber seal once those fuses are removed.

Per @IASSR, I've also have ours on a battery tender (Deltran 3amp) when it's stored and haven't ever removed any fuses or relays.

BTW, our good friend Mark (@Autoprof) was selling caution labels for the under hood fuse box that probably should have been OEM:

Bad idea--stick with the battery tender--Alot safer---If you use the search area up on top, you will find several different ways they have been hooked up. Plus this will make the battery last longer. The tenders turn on and off automatically--super safe. Always rol the windows down just a couple inches!!
