Portable ice maker is one of the best accessories purchased for RVing...Those bullet shaped cubes massage the bourbon just right

Got ours from Walmart for @ $120. Works great and cubes aren't hard to separate when in freezer. As someone said, Beats the hell out of $3.00/bag. SKnight reminded me that ours is a Magic Chef also.

Got one last year. Only used it on the longer trips but it made a fair amount of ice. Only problem is the ice hopper is small so you have to empty often to get the most use of it, can't really change it too much though or it wouldn't really be portable. Overall if you find one on sale it's not a bad investment.

We got ours at Target. Works great, when not using ice, machine shuts off. I turn it back on when we need it and have ice in about 20 minutes. Wouldn't leave without it.

Bought ours at Target for about $100. Four years later still running strong. Sit mine inside a a regular plastic dishwashing tub in case of leaks. Never had one, but... It is a little loud but not too bad once you get used to it. I start my Gen about 30 minutes before we stop and start making ice. Keeps up with our use the rest of the night....

We bought a Danby ice maker 5 years ago, works great, set it on the counter and it has the first round of ice before I get the site squared away. DW likes her ice tea and we carry a Mr. Coffee tea maker as well. As the freezer gets lower from storage, fill it back with ice, seems to keep things cooler in the freezer. For you folks that like the other liquid refreshments, some of the ice maker make several sizes and shapes of cubes!
