winterizing the icemaker

I have a 2008 Berkshire that I am winterizing. I blew out the lines for everything except the icemaker. How do I winterize this item? Please help.

Drink Gin and Tonic until all the ice is used up!

I am not sure what your system looks like, but maybe if I explain my system, it might help you with yours. The last thing you want is pink ice cubes in the future.

With my unit you need to disconnect the ice maker tube to prevent the RV Antifreeze from going into the unit and making pink ice cubes. I have circled the tube which will have pink antifreeze in it after you are done. I have circled the part with the hose disconnected that keep the antifreeze from going into the ice maker. Also when I winterized mine, I need to unplug the electrical connection to the unit with the hose that was disconnected. I then drain this unit using a patch cord with two connectors that needs to be plugged into the area at the top of the next picture which is also circled (I need to unplug the existing connections there to drain the tube). You would leave the hose disconnected, until you drain the antifreeze out in the spring and reconnect it. Hopefully I got all of the steps in there.

There is a shut off vavle on the cold water feed under the sink in the bathroom that will prevent any pink antifreeze from going to the ice maker. I usually un-hook the tubing that goes to the ice maker from this shutoff and from the outside valve on the back of the refrigerator that lets the water go to the ice maker and blow air (by mouth) through it (from the bathroom side). I also un-hook the water line that goes from the outside valve to the ice maker and blow air through that as well.
