Ice maker water shut off?

Is there a water shut off valve for the ice maker on a 2008 Berk 360 QS? The fridge is a Dometic. Just getting around to investigating why the ice maker is not working. Removed the plastic hose attached to the solenoid (outside access hatch) and there is no water reaching the fridge. Seems like that might be an important ingredient in the ice making process ...

Doh! (Homer Simpson moment). The shut off valve in question is located under the bathroom sink. Sorry for the waste of electrons.

Yep. Got caught by this one myself. In the 390BH the kitchen sink is within 3 foot of the refrigerator, yet they run the line all the way across the coach to the bathroom sink!

On mine, if they put the valve under the kitchen sink, it would mean another line that passes from a fixed part if the coach to a mobile part, thus increasing wear and tear on that line, possibly subjecting it to failure or getting pinched during a slide movement. Maybe that's why they put it there? Anywhere closer to the fridge would mean it would be below the deck down in the cargo hold.

That's exactly the situation in mine as well. I looked everywhere except the most logical place. One twist of the wrist and problem solved. With a little embarrassment for not realizing the obvious before posting the question. Another ownership mystery solved.
