You can't go wrong preaching "best practices" on the internet, but there's "good enough" too. I stow our Honda 2k in a cockpit locker on our current boat and know folks who store it in their saloon on their Catalina 34's. I put a couple quarts of gas in it to charge the batteries and when the motor quits, I let it cool down and then it goes back in the locker.
