Those parts are needed to connect the water line to the ice maker with you plan on using the ice maker. If you are not planning on using the ice maker then they do not need to be installed.

There should be instructions on connecting to the fridge itself in the user manual.
The water supply connection will vary depending on the type and size of the existing water supply line.
You will need a shutoff valve (to connect to the existing water supply line), some 1/4 inch ID water line (to go from water supply to fridge) and some fittings to tie into an existing water line.
Your best bet is to go to a plumbing store (Home Depot is good) and explain what you are doing and the type and size of water line you are connecting to.

Ask the dealer to do it. I'm sure you will have a few other tweeks.

If this connection leaks you will have serious damage to your camper's floors and walls. If you are not totally confident in your ability to make watertight connections, I would recommend having the dealer hook it up.

Water line

Thanks I agree - I looked at the back of the unit today and I can see a clear plastic hose going in on top and a copper line coming in on the lbottom
- so I'm not sure if these were spare parts I attached a picture.

Those are most likely spare parts. Whoever installed the water connection at FR just used ones he had available.

Don't think those are spare parts.
The copper line would be the propane line and the clear plastic hose would be the drain line.

Copper line out from celinoid

The copper line on the bottom is covered in a rubber casing

The new pics do show it better. The plastic 1/4 " line would be the water line to the ice maker with a solenoid valve.
Where does the copper line end up at ? It should be for the propane supply.

Water line

The little box covered in the same silver stuff to the left, same size as the box with the clear water tube has a copper pipe coming out of the bottom it is covered in rubber it goes up behind a black oval steel thing (condenser ? ) and it looks like the pipe goes into the wall - I can take a better picture of that tomorrow. And again thanks very much for helping us figure this out

Not sure what that small copper pipe is for. Does it connect to the solenoid?

That is a brass crush ferrule seal. You put the nut on the white plastic hose; slip the crush seal on next; then fasten everything to the brass fitting.

When you tighten the nut, the crush ferrule seal pinches the white plastic hose making a watertight seal.

The silver tapered tube goes inside the white plastic hose to provide the hard surface for the ferrule to crush against.
