maintenance of storing grey/black tanks for summer

I see a lot of info on winterizing your tanks but haven't seen what to do if it's sitting idle in the summer for weeks at a time.

I live in Arizona and it's getting hot. I have a Scamp 2015 16' deluxe with bathroom/shower that I bought 3 months ago.
I'm wondering if I leave any water in the fresh water tank and in the black water tank? I'm new to owning a trailer so all I know is the difference between the black and grey tanks.
Please give me a detailed step by step process for all the water holding tanks regarding if I leave water in them. I have happy camper for sanitizing. Thoughts on chlorine bleach for the fresh water tank?

Fresh water tank is for washing and then it goes i to the grey holding tank.
The black holding tank is for the toilet flush.
Me, I drain the black tank i to the dump station then drain the grey tank into the black tank then i to the dump station. I drain the fresh water tank to the ground and B 4 the next camping trip, I sanitize it with a bleach mixture, flush fill, flush then fill. I do not fill it all the way up due to the weight. We use it to wash and not to drink. We buy bottled watter, freeze them then put in the fridge on the day of departure to help keep the fridge cold and use them to drink.

We put the toilet additive in the black tank. You can get allot of your camper stuff at Walmart at a better price than a camping store.
