Question new owner thor chateau 33w


I am a new owner. I would like to say I love our new motor home, but it is to early to say. I am unsatisfied that there is no way to turn off the residential refrigerator other than turn off the inverter. In addition there is no way to access the water line to the ice maker other than deinstalling the entire refrigerator which would take two adults. I am frustrated. I previously owned a Class A Coachmen Diesel pusher. I knew every nook and cranny of it and was able to access everything for maintenance. I have made numerous inquiries to the dealer and to Thor. Thor was helpful by sending me diagrams but no advice.

I will probably winterize by putting ten gallons of a-freeze into water tank and running ice maker for a few hours until it is pink. Hard to do when you are on the road. And then a pain to get rid of the anti-freeze taste. I prefer to use compressed air to blow out the lines but can't figure out how to blow out the ice maker.

Congrats on you're new RV. I have the same unit and you can access the ice maker water line valve by opening the drawer under the fridge. What I don't remember is if there's an off setting inside the fridge where you turn the dial to make it colder.
