I also make sure the battery plates are water covered.
Thanks for the replies
Put Stabil in gas tank when topping off the tank for storage. A tank less than full invites moisture to collect in the tank, which can cause a myriad of problems with your fuel system. Disconnect all batteries after they are fully-charged. Then do not start the engine unless you will drive it for a minimum of 20 minutes to get everything heated enough to evaporate any moisture that formed from starting the engine, and that condensed in the crankcase.
My MH engine and generator sat with Stabil in the fuel system for 6 years without being started, until I bought it from the terminally-ill owner. Of course it's a diesel, but a gas rig isn't stored much differently.
