For the length of time you have specified, I don't believe any particular action is required.

I always fill the water tanks to eliminate as much air as possible and discourage the development of mould.

If the van is sitting for extremely long periods, an occasional part rotation of the wheels may help with flat spots. Just ensure tyre inflation is kept "normal".

I'm diagonally parked in a parallel Universe!

Before I sold my van "lack of use" if I knew it was going to stand for a while I would put a liter of Milton in the water tank then fill it, if you have a battery set up have it on trickle charge,then open it every so often to air, and remember to empty the water before your next trip,
