In Maine unsolicited advice is rare; I appreciate all the responses and advice this forum has provided me. It is a bit of a stretch to go from winterizing to "rats & cats" but I have enjoyed the exchange. Thank you one and all. Warmest Regards.....

The normal advice is to fill fuel tanks to avoid condensation forming -- the less air there is, the less moisture there is to condense.
