    Quick question about any maintenance for a unused bathroom. Obviously I have a toilet/sink/shower/tub. I never use this bathroom should I run the water everyone and awhile or what should I do?

    It can't hurt to keep the traps full to keep odors out.

    That would be the sensible thing to do.
