Ice maker

2016 hurricane 35c. I acnnot find the valve to turn on the water for the ice maker. Have called thor they said it was under the fridge where the heater ducts are or behind the drawer below the stove. NOT THERE. Called the dealer, try under the sink Not there either. Is.there really a valve.to turn on the water. According to the plumbing diagram it is under.the fridge. Thanks in advance for any info.

On my Miramar I had to remove four screws and a panel under the refrigerator to get to it. Once removed, it was right in front of me.

Do you have an RV refrigerator (LP and elec) or a residential refrigerator?

Residential. I have scoured everywhere they told me. See my first post.

I looked at the pictures for a 35C on line. Knowing how mine is set up I would look under the fridge and then pull the drawer under the stove. You said you have done that and did not find the valve. The next place I would look is under the bottom drawer between the stove and the sink. The valve and line it is attached to could be laying flat and be hidden by the drawer or something else laying on top of it.

Yes, there should be a valve and the motorhomes usually ship with the valve turned off and the ice makers winterized.

When you pull the drawers and open the access panels, rather than looking for a valve try looking for a thin 1/4 inch line running to the refrigerator and then try to trace it back. Imagine the refrigerator pulled out of the cabinet and then think about how far they could run an 8 foot line and then search everywhere within that distance.

Those are just my thoughts and how I would approach the issue.

Although I am not 100% on this, I would think the line goes from under the bed (blue main line coming from pump/city water connection) to the passenger side wall, routed around the bathroom on the passenger side at floor level and then to the fridge behind the back wall of the bathroom behind the toilet. On mine, I don't see any of the small ice maker line anywhere before the blue main goes into the wall back there, so I would guess that the ice maker line junctions off either under/behind the fridge or to the side by the sink, as the Thor tech suggested. Since I haven't taken the fridge out I didn't look there, but I also haven't looked for the valve to winterize/dewinterize the ice maker yet. I'm sure I haven't found EVERY access panel yet, so it is more than likely tucked in with other heat/electric lines under the fridge.

On another note, my unit did come dewinterized (except for the main water tank drain valve) as the ice maker worked on day one.

Talking

Thanks to everyone's input. I found the valve. I figured I would take a second look and found it after removing the drawer below the stove. It was buried under the gray duct that runs behind the drawer. For all the 35C and similar model owners that is the location. So when you winterize you now know where to look. Again thanks to all.....

Ice maker shut off valve

djnash, Thanks for starting this post. As you will see in mu bio I have the same 2016 Hurticane 35C. I looked and looked for that shut off valve but couldn't find it. This weekend the drawer comes out so I can turn the water on to the ice maker. Thank you again. Jim K.
