2006 Alpine Limited Coach 36FDDS

Good Morning Everyone, Have another question for all my Apliine Tech's.

While I was crawling around the basement in the coach trying to get a handle on where everything is, I noticed a 3/8" steel braded hose mounted to the ceiling with a needle valve. It's on the left rear side of the coach, just behind the central vac unit. The needle valve is closed and I can't see where either end of it goes or what it is feeding. Should the valve be open or left closed? I know it's not propane, that's all ran in copper tubing. I looked through all the manuals & couldn't find any information on it.
Any thoughts?

Thanks Roger

Probably the water line for the fridge ice maker.

Now why didn't I think of that? But you would think they would have ran that in plastic tubing. So the needle valve has to be open if I want ice cubes. Not an issue right now here in Michigan, need to wait until we get out west where it's warm and I need ice.
Thanks for the help.
Roger

Roger- you show your coach stats (2006 Alpine 36FDDS) in your signature. You could use the thread title to more specifically address the topic of the thread. E.g. this thread could have been titled 3/8" Steel Braided Line in Basement. This would help down the line when folks search the topics for relevant info (might even help you when you want to relocate a thread at a later date).

Thanks Mike, I'll make sure I do. I sure feel like a Brand New Newbie. When will my learning curve be over? How many trips does it take the average RV'er?
Roger

Well, Roger, we've been at this for 8 years now and I still feel like I'm learning things about our coach! There is just sooooo much! So take heart, you can really enjoy your coach while learning.

Roger, Your learning curve is over when you sell your motorhome. Asking questions and working on your coach is part of the "Fun" of ownership.
