fresh water tank

I have a 100 gallon fresh water tank in my 2006 Fleetwood Revolution. I just filled it up adding 1 3/4 C. of bleach to sanitize the tank, I let it sit over night and then drained the tank- refilled and drained again. Now my question is, The RV will be sitting for 1-2 months should I fill the tank or leave it empty????

I leave the tank & water heater filled with about 3 oz of bleach and also have it in all the pipes (tubing). The bleach does not dissipate if there is no air. If we had city water, I'd just use that straight because all seem to have enough chemicals.
I don't like to leave it empty because it would never really be dry in there.
