Cleaning out for serivce

I've had several campers and never had to leave them for extended periods of time at the dealership for warranty work. Now that I have a Columbus it looks like it will be in there often. My question is, do you take everything out of your campers before you take it in for service or just leave it and trust the dealer will keep it locked? If you do take stuff out, what do you take? I honestly don't have anywhere to store all this stuff and don't have the time to keep taking it in and out.

Thoughts?

I leave everything!
Not one issue.
My dealer has security fence all the way around lot and makes sure all doors and cubbys are locked

I, on the other, hand take it as an opportunity to do a complete inventory by removing most everything and when the camper comes back I reload (checking off what I used and did not use) based on our trip checklist.

Most folks who don't do something like this find that their gross weight grows, while mine has been shrinking.

I do it once a year in the spring before it goes in for inspection.

I usually try to "trim the fat" once or twice a year. Although we just moved into this one and hate to have to take everything out. Bad enough it's a 3 hour drive each way to our dealer.
