Leaving RV for 2 month(August & September) in Florida

We live full time in our 5th Wheel and have since 1998. We are going north for a visit for 2 months. We are shutting everything down and unplugging from power.
I have several Questions.
1. holding tanks leave a little water & chemical in them or not?
2. keeping the bugs and critters out?
3. what to do on the inside the inside.( kitty litter?)

Do not know for Florida.
For winter in PA (mice and chipmunks). We use mothballs and mouse houses.
Do not know on bugs.

We live in Florida and store ours for the 5 months of the snowbird season. Nothing special for holding tanks or bugs. Make sure all small openings are sealed, although I have not had trouble with mice. When you are ready to return, buy a Raid Fumigator, the kind you set off by water. It will take care of bugs if any.
