2014 Encounter 36BH refrigerator question

Newbie question........getting the RV ready for our first trip. The residential refrigerator has an ice/water dispenser. I just got done sanitizing the water system. Why can't I get water from the refrigerator? Is there a valve that needs to be turned on? I can't find one anywhere. When I try to get water I can't hear the pump running either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yes to your answer but where I have no idea other than a few suggestions.

The valve is usually very close to another water source like the kitchen sink or bathroom sink. It is a small valve and may look like this one.
My refrigerator is not a residential but this is how I turn on the water for the ice maker and in door water.


If you have a water supply hooked up you may have to place a cup in the door awhile to get it to flow because if it was never filled it take a long time to get the water thru all the internal lines.
Do you have a water filter in the refrigerator?
Can you access the refrigerator from the outside below its location. The valve may be there with the power invertor.
I have seen it behind a piece of black plastic that covers the area.
Good luck

Thanks for the picture and info. Still looking. Probably the only thing we did not go over during the PDI.
