fresh water tank

I just sterilized the fresh water tank but will not be using our 5th wheel for about 6 weeks . I am not sure if I should keep fresh water in the tank for that long without using. Would it be better to drain the tank ?

I doubt you would want to do much with the water after that long.

Be sure to open any low point drains as well.
