Black Tank Question

Ok. I should probably know the answer to this question by now. Living in the RV for almost 2 years. But going to ask anyway since we hadn't come up to this problem before now. I am moving down to GA for 6 months (April - Oct) while my husband is at training in TX. We are leaving the RV where it's parked where we currently live in TN. As far as the black tanks are concerned. Since I'm not moving it, and I'm not storing it during winter. Spring has already come around here. And it doesn't get cold until around Jan. Should I leave my solution in the black tanks while I'm gone or just dump them completely, clean them out and leave them empty while I'm gone? If I leave them with solution that will be all that I leave in them.

Do not leave them empty!

I'd put about 4 gallon in black and grey with whatever you use for tank additives.
Don't forgot to put plenty of water in toilet.

Black Tank Question

Shouldn't ever let a black tank dry out!
In the time frame it shouldn't freeze
