Preparation of water system for storage

We are currently in El Salvador and leaving our 380-91 for six weeks. I am triying to decide whether to leave the tank full or drain it down and add a little bleach to kill any bacteria that may grow. I do have the aluminum water tank and I do know that bleach is not good for it. We have done it in the past when we had smelly water. we added a little Bleach for a few hours and then flushed the tank several times and seemed to have ho problems. I am wondering if anyone else may have a better sollution.
