I have been unable to used my rig this year so I never de-winterized from last winter. Can I just leave the antifreeze in the lines for this winter or do I need to de=winterize then winterize again. I winterized in about Nov. of 16.

Thanks.

As long as no lines ruptured last winter, you will be fine/

Why? IF...the damage is done and the water is out. Leave it alone and do not worry about it.

just drain the water system, no reason to leave anti freeze in it any longer. if there was an issue, it happened last winter.

I emptied all water tanks last winter so there shouldn't be any water left in the system.

Thanks all for your comments.

I would leave it winterized as is. Might add just a little RV antifreeze to the sinks and toilet and shower just to be safe.
