Icemaker supply.

Hi all, I just bought a 2021 Montana High Country 377FL, trying to find the supply line valves to the icemaker/water dispenser. I understand there is two of them one at the kitchen sink and one somewhere near the fridge?? Any help with the location would be great. Sadly so much went on during the walk thru we overlooked the fridge ice maker.Click image for larger version

Your fridge appears to be in a slide with the dining table. If I'm correct, look under the slide at the end where the fridge is located and see if you can find the water supply line to the fridge. It should be a flexible hose (mine's white) with a spring attached to the frame underneath the slide. If you can trace that, it may reveal where they hid the second valve.

On ours, there is a plastic cover at the floor by the dining table. Remove the cover and there is the valve.

I have the 375FL, which is the identical floor plan as yours, but not with the loft above the bedroom. On mine, the refrigerator and dining table are reversed, even though floor plans show them with the refrigerator to the front and table to the back.

Beside the wall of the refrigerator, you should see a black covered plastic box. 2 Robertson head screws will remove it. The valve is behind it.

On mine, there is only 1 valve. I have a drain valve under the main body of the trailer, and I added a second drain line under the slide.











I had to replace the line under the slide because the connection started leaking. All I had to replace at the time was a standard bathroom sink flexible hose. It worked perfectly fine, but it was too long. I ordered the right length and got this one replaced eventually. It was at that time, I added a new drain for the refrigerator under the slide.

This is the main reason why I also make sure I winterize (with pink stuff) the ice maker. That line running from the frame to the inside of the slide and up through the floor is 100% exposed. No insulation, no heat, no nothing. If it's not winterized, that line freezes. I've never found a second shut off valve anywhere in mine in 2 1/2 years of ownership.

I also have the 2018.5 375FL with residential fridge setup and my second shut off valve for the ice maker is under the sink. I could take a picture of it when I am at the coach this weekend if it would help.

Rbeitz, you made me go look again and yep! I think you are right. At least there is a T on the water line coming up to the sink. One side goes to the sink, the other side goes into a valve and back to the floor. I guess I never noticed it before until now. That would make sense though, because under the kitchen floor there is a cold water drain valve. And where the line come through the trailer frame under the slide, I added another drain at that junction. Easy to remove, it's just a 1/2 inch threaded PVC valve.

So, in the winter, when we are still using water in the camper. I shut off the valve in the sink. Open the drain valve under kitchen floor outside, I can remove the line on the valve by the refrigerator and let it drain.

Thanks.

For winter, I turn off the valve under the sink and open the drain under the trailer that is midway under the kitchen floor. I then go to the outside of the frame and disconnect the flexible line that runs under the slide and let that drain. That seems to let all the water drain from behind the fridge and valve close to the fridge. I also let the ice maker stay on for a few hours to cycle any water that may be left in it. This method has worked for me for three winters now and I have not had to run the pink stuff to the icemaker. So far no freezing, even though we have had some near zero temps for several days at a time.
