Storing in North Florida

Taking a trip to Florida in a week and have decided to store my motor home in the Jacksonville area rather than bring it back to Ohio. I've already decided that since I have the pink antifreeze to use it, the few bucks is well worth the piece of mind in case of a really cold snap. I have tire covers and plastic sheets for under the tires which I will use. I use moth balls in containers on top of tires to help keep the mice out. Stabilizer for the fuel (gas). Unfortunately I will not be able to run my generator once a month as I do now. Anything else I can do to the generator? My other question is I have a ADCO cover which I use in Ohio, what about Florida? I've read all the threads debating cover or no cover. Personally I like to cover. If nothing else it will protect it from the Florida sun. Is humidity an issue in the winter? Would the cover promote mold in the interior? I do use several damp rid products.
Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Those adco covers ventilate really good so it will let air flow, and will keep the winter stuff off the unit

Lots of potential for damage from salt air as well that a cover greatly minimizes. If not covering the vehicle a trick that helps is to spray the chrome with clear lacquer to minimize oxidation and rust and corrosion.
