Emptying Water Heater Tank for Storage

Good Morning!
Got my new Airstream 2 weeks ago. Very happy but had to put it in storage right away as the building inspector in the town where I live in northern NJ immediately issued a summons for putting it in my driveway. So in my haste and inexperience the one thing I forgot was to empty the hot water heater tank.
Any issues leaving the tank full for a few weeks until I get to it?

no. You only have to empty it in Winter when storing. I open the drain plug, then after most water is out I use a shop vac to suck out the remainder.
A few weeks should be no issue for the tank

Agreed fine as-is. Be sure to drain and fill all lines with fresh water, diluted with bleach per other threads to sanitize the lines, and same for fresh water tank. Rinse rinse rinse etc..

What a bummer you can't look at your new baby everyday city ordinances ? There needs to be an exception for Airstreams !

At this time of year, your hot water heater and water will be fine. We go camping once a month or so, and don't do anything to the water heater when the Bambino is not in use.
