I would fill it up to keep the condensation out. I would also add more treatment to the fuel. I would error to the caution side.

They say that even stabilized ethanol/gasoline fuel is only
good for a year. I'd drain the fuel out and use it my cars, and
put clean, fresh, stabilized fuel in the coach.
If you have diesel then Koda59 has the answer.

Ditto. I would probably top it off with premium and then treat the whole tank again as if never treated. Use the amount on the lable to treat the fuel for a year.

Add a couple of ounces of biocide and top off with diesel
