Hey this is good stuff. I just called whirlpool they said "run AF through ice maker and let cycle for24 hours". They clearly do not own an RV. When the solenoid is disconnected, the water will drain out from above it? Has this worked for you?

Yes I just open lines outside, let them drain. Hold open water disp a few minutes, if fitted.

Last open and drain supply tube to main inlet port. Line will self drain, use air or rag to dry up valve inlet.

Ok so I understand, open up the supply tube going up to the ice maker? The supply valve won't freeze? I'm thinking about taking valve off and bring it home. This way the water will drain from everything. I just have an ice maker in the freezer. No cold water dispenser. I am worried about possible damage to ice maker tubing.

Agree with you, if single Sol and you have plumbing off already its only one wire and a screw to remove. My valve is over $100 so its worth protecting.
