This is somewhat off topic, but after seeing the FAQ posted by OnyxSky, I have another question. Does this type of refrigerator require leveling like the absorption refrigerators do?

The simple answer is no the rv does not have to be level for the residential frig to operate. A residential frig has a compressor just like the unit in your home and not an ammonia absorption RV type.

We too own a new Sanibel 3901. We did not receive any information during our PDI about the water line. Admittedly, we were looking at the bigger picture of systems and operations (electric, hydraulic, AC, heat, etc...). During our first camping trip, we were investigating and testing all the sub features of each system. That is when we determined that we could not get water through the refrigerators water dispenser. We do not have an icemaker installed (really didn't want one). After talking it through and weighing the various options of having it work and winterizing, we came to the conclusion that we could live without it. We do filter our drinking water through a Brita pitcher. I agree with you that it should have been connected. We are happy with our Sanibel and yes we are glad we made the choice.

I have the Crusader 351. To recap this thread.....Look under the sink in both the kitchen and bathroom for a shutoff valve. Is there anywhere else? I asked my dealer if they installed the water line....they said "we think so". We never used it as we drink bottled water. I have had so-so service from the dealer the past year, so I'm not very keen to take it to them to winterize it and want to do it myself this season.

Anyone else with an idea where the valve may be, would be greatly appreciated!

Only if you want square ice cubes!

It doesn't require 100% level, it's works like a traditional fridge because it is a standard consumer residential fridge.

Don't understand why there are so many issues with people understanding this, really I think this is a result a manufacturer using a fridge that has the options and not including the hookups as a standard feature. The dealers who say otherwise are just misinformed.

I have the 3601 with the residential fridge and I have spoken with RV specialist and they told me that PrimeTime does not hook up the water line to the fridge. Mainly due to water leaks and winterizing issue. This is the information I received.

We have a 2016 Sanibel 3701 with a residential frig. No water line was run to the frig. I contacted PT tech to find where the valve was and he said PT does not install it. It seems they would put it in and let the owner worry about winterization. IMHO
