We're on our way to the west coast, where we will leave our motorhome near Sacramento for 3 months (mid March to mid June). My biggest concern is that there will be no one to run the generator. I know I should use a gas stabilizer, but is this enough?

I would change the oil in both the generator and the drive engine. Cover the tires to keep the sun off. If you do not have a roof vent cover similar to the Max Air you may want to consider installing a couple; this will allow you to get some air flow through the coach and not worry about rain getting in. Make sure all batteries are full of water and charged and when you leave disconnect a cable from each bank to prevent full discharging. You will probably loose 30% but should be ok once you recharge them. I am sure some others will think of some more to help you out with this storage. Good luck and be safe.
