Minnesota may be different...but here's what I'll share from our experience

As long as you have a Florida drivers license (and you can only have a driver's license in one state now), and you have registered to vote in Florida (and we all know that you can only vote in one state)...and you register a vehicle in Florida, you should be fine

two years in a row we were challenged by our previous state when we didn't file a state tax return....we provided pictures of our driver's licenses, voting record, utility bills which were sufficient both times for them to shut up

What our attorney told us is that there are no requirements to be in any one location for more than half the year in the USA to determine legal residency in any state...that that's an urban myth

legal residency is where you declare your legal residency to be. I believe that there is a form on the Florida state website somewhere for just that purpose

I'd also recommend that you 'homestead' in Florida

good luck
