MH to dealer do you empty it out

Being new to MH, I'm dropping my new MH off at the dealer for warranty work in a few hrs. and was wondering do you empty everything out or certain things or nothing at all? I've taken out grille, tools but left in my box of electrical stuff and cables along with my sewer and water hoses etc. Are things safe there? I'd hate to have to take everything out... and then put it back in in a week
Thoughts?

I take mine in just the way I store it or have it loaded at the time of service. Refer off and house batteries off. Then tell the service person that is the way I have left it. If they are to work in an area I remove all item from there. I lock all storage bays and if they are disturbed there had better be a reason or we will have a serious talk. But have never had a problem.

We've never emptied anything, but the dealers we used had good reps and decent lot security. That's not the case everywhere...
With one previous rig we had it at a Chevy dealership for some Workhorse chassis work and it was waiting on a part. Happened to drive by the back lot and saw our RV parked with the door wide open, so stopped and complained. Later we learned [privately] from a shop tech that some of the guys were using it as a break room! Never went back there again!

I remove computer and any similar portable high value electronics. Otherwise everything stays.

I'm not as trusting. But we don't take everything out.

It depends on the dealer, their employees & security setup...

I remove anything that can walk. I don't consider it a matter of trust , it's SOP and it has worked well for us.

Taking out everything that could walk would take us a week

Computers and cameras come with us and everything else stays. We had food in the frig and have them plug in to keep it cold.
