Water valve for 20c.f. refrigerator

Does anyone know where the water valve to the ice maker is on this unit? The coach is an '18 38RE. Thanks all.

Look under the kitchen sink, you should see a wood panel shielding the plumbing. Reach behind this panel and feel for the T that goes to the fridge, the shut off valve should be right there. It may be a bit confusing not being able to see and with the supply line for the dishwasher right beside it but it is there.

Thanks Cypressloser, I found the peacock and it is in the flow position yet no water to the ice name for the ice maker is just not making ice. I'll have to look deeper into it. Do you know whether the unit has to be connected to city water or would the onboard water pump suffice?

It should work on city water and on pump pressure.
We have a LG fridge with bottom freezer that has a separate electric switch for the ice maker on the ceiling of the freezer compartment that has to be in the "On" position. The ice maker may have to go through a few cycles before all the air is bled from the supply line.
With the fridge being in the slide out there is a small chance for the hose being kinked, but this is unlikely.

Thanks for the info. The ice maker switch is on in the freezer compartment and the freezer temp switch is set to 0 degrees. The ice plus switch is also ON. We'll have to see what happens.

Just an update for ya. There is an access panel under the slide where the refrigerator resides. Inside there is a petcock for the icemaker water flow.

On our 2018 FB2 the ice make shut off valve is outside under the slide, it is a push/pull shut off. I turned ours on for the first time yesterday and we have a full bin of ice this morning. Just needed to open the valve, turn the ice maker switch and ice plus on.
Hope this helps.

You should find the water valve for the icemaker in the front bin on the rear wall. (under where the fridge is) It is a push/pull valve. OPEN in pushed in. That is the way our 39FK is plumbed.

Roodman, the leak may be under the bath lavatory. It is associated with park water, do you have a pressure reducer in line? If not in the cabinet, possibly under floor.

Lavatory leak

I agree with you. The water pressure is not that great. It is actually at my home sitting outback. I looked at the connections, but I will try to get up actually to the faucet. Thanks for the idea. The water is pooling right at the corner of the hall and the floor on the front wall.

thx.

happy trails.

leaky wall.

Thanks for asking. What I think it is ....The drip originates behind the wall around the shower faucets. The base of the panel under the TV is now warped.

I did not want to mess with pulling off the shower handles, and investigating it. I do not want to do anything that the service people will say, "I screwed it up".


I personally think its something to do with the shower I looked at all the connectors going to the lavatory, and they appear solid. Its the warped area on the edge of the wall and the floor that tells me its up from there.

Have a good weekend.

mike

Sad Looks to be a fix for the dealer. Good luck
