Probably not....I've done it several times. As long as no critters chew wires or store food in it somewhere.

Here was the most recent discussion

well, there's that thing about a/c needing continuous circulation, at least, once a month. or sediments develop. they say to run a/c even winter time, 15 minutes, once a month. i think, it's part of the reason modern cars have a/c on combined with "windows" settings in climate control. besides drying air out faster.
i'd say, engine needs to be at least hand turned once a month for storage. . 6 mths won't do much harm, but if you have a good pal that can turn it on and run, at least every other month, won't hurt either.
