winter camping with ice maker

It seems that my 3050s comes with an ice maker that has a heat strip. I winter camp in my motorhome,with the unit winterized. this heat strip turns on at freezing temps, so how do we use the frig without water in the unit, and not loss the switch that it protects. I usually turn the frig on thursday, stock food on friday. return on sunday, and shut off on monday. Since i usually go to maine or new hampshire,the temp at night will go below freezing. Any ideas are welcome here

Can't answer your question, but I applaud you for camping with your unit winterized. I did that once with my first RV which was a (ssssshhhhhhh don't tell Forest River, it was a Fleetwood Jamboree....) that was winterized and did NOT have an Arctic Package. I camped in MINUS 10 and the RV Park was covered with ice and I had to slip slide across the ice at TWO O'CLOCK AM to go to the bathroom.
JJ only, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge July 2015

I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"

Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!
