My mistake in our brand of ice maker. We too have the Emerson model identified by others. It looks amazingly similar to the one sold at CW, and I know we looked at their ice machines at one time. Actually..when you really look at both of them, it wouldn't surprise me if they were made by the same manufacturer.

As far as filling it up between making ice........you can top it up in the baggage compartment using a hose, or just lift it out from time to time and top it up there. Keeping it out of the direct sun is key to having it perform well. As far as how often..........how thirsty are you?

Been using a Sunpentown portable ice maker for three years. We keep ours in doors due to the Texas heat. There are cheaper units, they are all about the same. Portable ice maker is a must for the RV.

Don't have one, but from a video on youtube, you lift a basket and pour the water into the bottom, reinsert the basket, close the cover and punch the button for whatever type of ice you want, small, medium or large.

I am camping right now and am using my ice machine for the first time and I cant believe how wonderful it is. No more buying ice, you are going to love owning it.
