Solar Panels and Winterization Question

We have factory installed solar panels and in the course of removing our batteries for the winter did not remove the fuse from the solar panels. Should we have? Airstream does not provide an isolation switch which I am going to do.

If you're referring to the solar controller fusing or winterizing it, I have never done anything and there's a discussion about it here, which meanders around and a discussion on the cutoof switch but there's a post quoting Victron that it's not necessary to do anything. I assume they know what they're talking about.
