dewinterizing ice maker

Hey, quick question to throw out there. I'm just dewinterizing the coach and was wondering if I need to do anything with the ice maker in the residential fridge. I've already flushed the water from the door (learned last year to get the pink stuff out before putting in the new filter). Also, anyone have any tips for adding cleaning solution to the fresh water tank?

Pour 1/4 cup of bleach per 15 gallons down your empty freshwater hose then fill the fw tank

Turbs. I've got some stuff from camco, but needed an idea of how to get it in. I'll drop it into the fresh water hose, then. Thanks for the info....

Just run the icemaker a few cycles before you put the filter in the fridge.

Make sure you wear old clothes before doing that I made that mistake before.

There is a good video on the FR Owners manual showing the best way to sanitize the fresh water tank.

I have I thought on this ice maker question. I know most people winterize the ice maker but why? Isn't it designed to live in a frozen environment? What would happen if we did nothing to it in the winter and only winterize the feed line and the rest of the water system?

Silver,
That's the issue. You need to winterize the feed line and in turn, that will winterize the ice maker.
