As the batteries are already out and on the ground to be used for the welding job the power is disconnected.
As you are not going anywhere quickly I'd be unplugging anything from the wiring that had any sort of electronics in it as well, won't tak long and will give peace of mind.
If the part can be removed from the truck then I'd do that as well to both make it easier to weld especially under bush conditions.
