1 month is my guide. If we will be back out in a month, I leave it. Well, only if it has city water in it. I also sanitize the tank and lines twice a year though.

Side question- when sanitizing the lines, do you also push the bleach/ water mix into the water heater? I don't think I have done that.

Yes, I found that out. I pulled the drain plug (which has the anode attached to it) to drain the tank. I will do that when I winterize it.

The hot connection is at the top of the tank so it will not drain it.
