There are electric heated rugs also. I may eventually try that.

Check the arm above the tray and make sure its down, if it is stuck in the up position you wont get ice.

I reached into the ice maker and found one cube that had not cleared.

On the ice maker. No ice stuck since no ice made. :-) I think I checked the arm and made sure it's down because that happens in the home frig too. We'll be out in the coach this weekend so I will check it but last time we were out for almost two weeks and no ice but every once in a while. I just used a tray and made it myself. Will have it in for service next week. Ordered the dash board cover but we haven't received it yet but I will report on it when we do. Still have issue with the firefly that controls the televator. It was replaced but I think the wires are loose because it will go out occasionally and I have to remove the plate and jiggle the wires a bit and it will come back on. My fear is that it will happen, again, while the TV is up and there doesn't seem to be any back up for lowering the TV. Only the one switch so what do you do then? This is why I've become proficient with the wire jiggling thing. :-) Have been wondering too what happens if the bed won't work on retraction? What's the back up for that? It's been fine so far but things break and I want to know what to do. The manual isn't always so helpful.

I had the same issue with my icemaker, ended up Maytag replaced the entire icemaker and wire harness. Works better than ever now. Btw you can call Maytag service line directly and have a tech come out to you for service. That was the way I had mine fixed. They will ask if it is in an RV I figure based on the S/N you give them, but they find a certified tech in your area to come to you.

The bed was also an issue for me. Went to raise it one morning during our travels and it would not move, as you know, no move, no slide in... After lifting the not so light bed, I found the master relay was flashing red, I pushed the reset button and the bed would move about 2 inches, kept resetting it until it was raised. Ended up having the dealer replace the lift motor.

The TV is always a concern for me as well. I have had no problems yet... but as we know.. it's not if..but when..

I also relocated the master relay switch to the outside of the bed frame underneath the bed skirting, a much easier access now if it ever happens again.

Nice to hear the ice maker was fixed akcretired. We chatted about this before and if the dealer tech can't fix it then I will call Maytag next. Good to know about the relay switch for the bed. We haven't had any trouble so far but now I'll know where to start. It boggles my mind that there wouldn't be a back up for the televator or at least another switch somewhere. Anyone talking to Winnebago that could ask about it?

We had water freezing problems with our ice maker but found out the installation was letting the
Water line freeze before the fitting!

MountainMH-we had that issue in our house ice maker many years ago until they found out a way to fix it. We had some ice made a few times this weekend while out. I noticed if I flipped the switch off moved the lever and turned it back on ice would be made. the coach is going in this week for a couple of leftover items so I'll have them look at it. Of course it'll work fine while they have it!
On to another subject. I hate that the light switch for the bedroom is so inconveniently located. Has anyone found an attractive option to this issue? My husband wants to stick one of those ugly lights up somewhere.

Jenny and I have had the same frustration with the light. I am assuming that one could add an extra switch a plate.

I guess so Bill but I'd be afraid having someone mess around with the light switches would mess something else up. I still hope someone has a clever decorating idea for this problem area.

I was assuming you meant having a switch as you enter the bedroom not on the far side of the bed. I was referring to adding another plate which wouldn't be that difficult - but then again I work in electronics. Not sure I understood the decorating part.
