Propane tanks storage question

We need to put our AS in storage next month for the winter . What are the thoughts about storing your AS for three or four months with the propane tanks empty or full? I know that the normal advice for gasoline tanks is to have them full, what about the propane tanks????

Makes no difference since they are not open to the atmosphere like a gas tank is. There is no way for moisture to get in.

Storing trailer with propane tanks

Hi, This might not be exactly what you meant, but how about locking the tanks to the trailer with a cable or chain so they don't misteriously walk off. Are you afraid of fire hazzard? Leave them empty. Do you want to take off in a hurry without forgetting to fill your tanks? leave them full. My trailer is at my house. No locks on the tanks and they are full; ready for my next adventure. [for the bad guys, no address given.]
