Extended trip - S&B prep / gas

For those of you that take extended (more than 30 day) trips in the summer, do you?:

Turn off you water heater pilot and gas?
Turn off your furnace pilot and gas?
And if both of the above, do you also turn off the main gas line into your house?

And yes, we do turn off the master water line for the house, even for short durations away from home.

Turn the gas off at the meter same as water. If you go two steps further empty the fridge and freezer in case of am extended power failure. If you do empty the fridge you can trip the main power breaker and fully isolate the house from utilities.

If heading out during winter in freezing areas of the country winterize the house the same as you would the coach. Drain water lines and antifreeze drain traps.
