If mine would be due for a change during storage I would change it before otherwise I would wait till it's due. My guess is OP changes often (early) and it ain't needed but if it helps him sleep better.
on topic my low mileage toy is changed on time based intervals...I do 9 months instead of the 12 months the OLM suggests. This is 4 in 3 yrs rather than 3. It helps me sleep.
