I always do. I blow out the lines and don't use antifreeze (except for the traps and a bit in the tanks). After everything is drained I put a towel around the pump, disconnect the in and out lines and run it for a few seconds. The towel soaks up most of the water. Then I hook the lines back up for storage.

Ditto -- plus, before hooking everything back up, I make sure the in-line water filter is clean and empty, and (by mouth) blow into the supply line coming from the tank to send any misc. water back into the tank (with its drain valve open).

The gray tank tends to fill faster so it's a good idea, although if that was the reason one would wonder why they don't just make the gray tank larger and black tank smaller. Maybe it's just convenience of location and simplified plumbing.
FWIW, the nurse in me is VERY glad the sink drains into the black tank for sanitary reasons (since this is the model we are getting ready to order). All it would take is one person brushing their teeth to put body fluids in the grey tank if it didn't. EWW!!

(Sorry if this is TMI. )
