Need advice on holding tanks while in storage

We parked our 2017 Dutch Star 4369 in indoor storage connected to 30 amp electrical and zone 3 of the furnace set to 45 degrees.

Prior to storing, I drained both the black and gray tanks. After giving it some thought, should I have left some water in both tanks to keep the seals wet? Or, possibly add some RV anti-freeze?

Your thoughts...

Thanks,

Rex

Yes. A couple gallons is recommended. BUT...the pink stuff in the grey and black tanks is enough if you used 1/2 gallon or more while pouring it into the drains.

For the fresh water tank, nothing needs to be done other then dumping from the dump valves provided by the manufacturer. A small amount of water in there could freeze solid but it wouldn't hurt the tank because the surface area is so broad. Plus you'll have the furnace going and some heat is forced into the wet bays on most Class A RV's.
