Prepare the Home
We all have our list of must have's for our RV's/Motorhomes while we prepare for a camping trip. I am starting early because I am going to embark on an extended trip next year.
So I am wondering what kind of suggestion do the more experienced have with preparing you home base for an extended leave of absence.

Such as, since I live in hurricane ally I would put up window shutters, pick up any items that might fly off in the yard.

What are your suggestions that you do before you leave your house for a long time?
