Arrow Odd winterizing question

This is going to be an odd question and I know I will take some heat for asking it but here goes...

I spent all summer buying and selling my new/old houses and moving/cleaning and did not get a chance to get out this year. Therefore I never dewiniterized the camper this year. Am I safe for this winter or should I refresh the antifreeze? I assume I need to do nothing but I don't want to take a chance and be wrong. I've never not dewinterized in 30+ years.



Suggestions?

If you never de winterized it, then you don't need to do anything. The antifreeze doesn't go bad after a year.

If things have settled down there is still time to get out for a trip!!!

Then you would need to winterize of course!

Should be fine as mentioned if you can't get out for a trip.
