Need to store my 2010 F150 Platinum for 3 months, will disconnecting the battery cause any issues with the electronics when I rehook it up?

If possible I'd hook up a battery maintainer and leave it sit. However, I suggest you drive it until almost empty and fill it up with non-ethanol gasoline. Ethanol sitting in a gas tank that long will cause condensation and water in the tank. Sitting that long will also cause the gasoline to separate from the ethanol.
