Cedar Creek 40CRS Water line question

Hello, we recently purchased a 2016 40crs. The old guy we bought it from never hooked up the water line to the fridge. I found the line behind the range and hooked it up. Only problem is, I cant find a valve to turn it on. I've checked the lines near the pump, underneath the frame, under the kitchen sink, under the slideout and Google is no help. I'm hoping someone here knows where it is. Thanks,
Shane

I am not familiar with your unit, but mine from what I recall is underneath the refrigerator slide on the outside of the unit. It is just a white push-pull valve on a cold water line just before it goes up into the slide. I don't use my ice maker so my valve stays closed so no water goes to refrig at all. Thus I don't have to winterize/de-winterize that section of the water system as it stays winterized. I didn't know where mine was till I asked if there was a shutoff for the refrig. Hope this helps in locating it.

I can’t even see where it goes up into the slide. I’m guessing that it’ll be under the enclosed belly pan which IMO is stupid cause if it starts leaking there’s no quick way to turn it off.

That's not good. I would have thought that it would need to be assessable as I would think the water line would be riding in/out with the slide. Only other thought is - Did the previous owner cap it off somewhere as they had no intention to using it and didn't want it to freeze.

Other than that I'm probably not going to be of any help, sorry. Maybe someone with your actual unit will response to your issue.

Take care and be safe.

PO told me he never hooked it up and didn’t know anything about it other than that the filter was in a drawer.

Call Orvan at Amish Family RV and ask him, he will probably know exactly where it is on that year and model. 260-593-0951 Jolisa will probably answer the phone, tell her what you need to know and she'll track down her dad to find out. Note: Call early in the AM as they are Amish and Jolisa is usually gone by 4PM if not earlier.

On my 40crs the valve is in the rear end under slide just a simple white push pull button.

On my 36CKS Cedar Creek the turn on/shut off valve is underneath toward the spare tire. It is on the driver side, just above the frame. A white pull/push valve. The valve is VERY hard to turn on. In doing mine, I thought I was going to break it.

My refer water valve

On my 2018 CCK ( rear BR,) 40CCK, the valve was forward on the bottom of the kitchen slide which is on the road side.
It is a white push/pull valve and hard to operate when new. My cold water line under the kitchen sink has a "T" connection and the new line goes under the floor and over to the valve and from there back to the Refer in the slide.
The drain for the line is near there too. It has a blue cap on it as I recall.
They built it that way just to make us upset.
Good luck...

Can you tell us where you found it? Others may be looking for it too. Thanks.

Under the slide mounted to the frame by the low point drain.

That's where mine is, but I don't think I explained it very well when I first responded to your issue. If mine wasn't at Orvan's in Indiana, I would have tried to initially post a picture of where it was to give you an idea where to look. Oh well all good now. Enjoy!
