Temporary storage

We've been on our campsite since mid-June (first with pop-up; last 2 weeks with "NTU" Keystone Outback). Trailer will be pulled off site the end of August and stored at CG. We'd like to keep open the possibility of camping a few more times in September-early October. We shouldn't need to winterize it yet. What do we need to do to get the trailer ready for short-term storage?

I'm assuming: clean out fridge/freezer; pack up packaged food; dump tanks; clean everything really well. Anything else?

I also do this:
  1. Pull the shades to help with sun fade of the interior.
  2. Put a box of baking soda in the fridge or prop the doors open to keep things fresh.
  3. Put an air freshener on the kitchen counter and maybe one in the bathroom.
  4. Turn off propane tanks.
  5. Disconnect battery or if you have a master power switch use that.

I would rather suggest putting foil insulation in all windows at the sun will over a period of time discolor and deteriorate shades. This will also keep the interior cooler. If you have the vent covers on over your roof fans then I also leave them slightly opened. Also those damp aid thingys help reduce the humidity.
