Do I start the engine during a long stay?

Iím a snowbird park in south Florida since November until mid-April. I remember at Spartan, I have asked the question and if I remember correctly, they said unless I go for a ride to bring the engine temperature high enough, they said to leave it alone. Is this correct, there is a lot of people here at the park that start the engine once a month.

If you are not going to take it out for a 1/2 hour or longer drive leave it off. Now the generator I would exercise it once a month for an hour.

Agree w/ 757 - let the others do as they choose.
Lots of MH & boat engines sit in storage for 4-6 mos w/o starting.
Run the gen for an hour or 2 as suggested and load it at least 50% remove load and let it run for 5 min to stabilize temp before shutting down.
