How full do you keep the tumbler?

I filled my composter full as suggested with the right amount of greens and browns to start with. I turn it at least every other day. Then I add the right kind of food scraps every day or so and retumble. It is not nearly as full as it was to start with. My question is, am I supposed to keep it full all the time or just to start with? It has been really hot and dry in Houston so how often should I add water. I have started collecting half full coke cans my family never finishes drinking and add that as well. I don't have a way, yet, to check the temp but will get something this week to do so. Christal
