Great to have you hear.

Yes I would drain the tank as the stagnate water will smell when you return. Sometimes I have to drain between monthly trips depending on the weather. JR

I drain mine, although a little remains due to the drain valve replacement. Adding a tablespoon of bleach will help, then flush it out when you return.

You need to drain the tank, the low point valves; and especially the hotwater heater. When you return, you should sanitize the entire system. Your manual or this forum will give you the proper procedure. Enjoy your trip!
