Question Winterized gas tank

My greyhawk 31ds will be stored at an inside climate controlled facility this winter for about 6 months. I live in Michigan and this facility will be kept at around 50 degrees. My question is should my gas tank be left full or almost empty and should I put an additive in it?

Thanks for any input.

When we owned our older Class A, our mechanic told us to always store it with a full tank and add stabilizer if it was going to be parked for more than a month or so. Something about condensation in the tank. We plan on doing the same with the new one.

Store with tank full and an additive. Full tank will help stop condensation which causes rust if it is a metal tank.

Question Winter storage

Thanks for the replies. Also does anyone know what other precautions should be taken when storing a motorhome inside for 6 months?

Thanks

Fill the tank.. add a product like Stabil...
I would drain all water out of it then blow out the lines.. just so stuff does not grow in the water.. you wont need antifreeze in it.. IF you have a plug in inside then add a ultrasonic pest repeller or 2 inside to keep mice out
