New Coach Storage Question

Hello!!!
We have been patiently awaiting the delivery of our 2019 Bay Star 3226 for months and Wednesday was the pickup date! We have been taking a leasurely drive back from Dallas to Oklahoma and our "girl" is safe and sound at home. We have unloaded all of our things and will clean her up and put her in storage for a few weeks in the next couple days. Because this is our first RV, we have tried to be methodical about setting up and closing down but I haven't found a lot of information about how to put into storage this time of year. We understand that winterizing will be a completely different process but any tips or suggestions for storing for several weeks at a time during peak camping season (April-October-ish) in our neck of the world would be great. We clearly know to remove any food that could be attractive to animals but otherwise, we aren't sure what to do. We are storing indoors in RV storage and we think there is 30 amp electric available. We would greatly appreciate any advice or guidance.

Thank you!!

Congratulations on your new coach.

Indoor storage with power, even 15 or 20 would be great , you just have to make sure the power plug isn't controlled by a GFCI , that may trip and leave the coach systems running the batteries down.

If the fresh tank is full of residential treated water , and you'll be using the coach every few weeks , I wouldn't bother draining that tank . Black tank drained and flushed , grey tank drained.
Depending on access to storage , leaving fridge running is optional , but if you plan on getting the coach back to your house 24 hours before you head out , then turn it off in storage and start it when you're parked at home loading up for travel.
I'm thinking with removing the food , that should cover it . The only thing better would be indoor storage with power IN your back yard.

Thanks! We decided to plug in (30 amp) and leave fridge running but everything else as you described. Have a great day!
