New RV icemaker bypass?

Hey there. I have a 2015 Chateau 31W. I am trying to get the ice maker to work on the refrigerator for the first time. The unit was winterized and I am wondering if the water valve to the fridge is turned off. Which brings up the question. Do you know where that valve would be? Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a Miramar 34.2, the water line for the ice maker is tapped from the kitchen faucet! For me the water line runs along the wall behind the kitchen counters/drawers. Try pulling the lower floor level drawers completey out and looking back there. You should see a shut-off valve back there!

Let us know if you find it,

Good luck!!

On prior coach (Forest River C) the icemaker valve was located outside in a panel that housed the refrigerator mechanicals (water and electric hookups). the panel was a plastic grille on the side of the coach immediately behind the refrigerator. The valve was a push pull type valve with a round knob. I would imagine yours is something similar.

Mine is behind the drawer that is under the fridge. They delivered mine with the valve closed so I had to hunt it done.

Thanks for all your help. I found it behind the door under the refrigerator. Of course when I turned it on...it started spewing water everywhere but I was able to tighten the connector and all is well. Thanks for your help!
