Water shut off valve for basement icemaker

Cannot find shut off valve for waterline to u line icemaker located in basement bay behind mid door entry. Looked in DS wet bay but not there. Not under kitchen sink or bathroom sink. Line just disappears into sealed area where black and grey water containers reside. 2000 mdss 330 cummins alpine coach.

Keep looking--location varies by model but should be behind velco-ed door in wet bay, above sewer drain valves. Other location might be behind the secured door on the other side of the tank compartment--remove screws at bottom, swing door up.....

On my 2001, the 1/4 line has a shut-off valve inside the compartment just in front of the passenger wheel well. There are two screws at the bottom that you remove and it lifts up.

On my '04 it is behind the Velco-ed panel, in plain sight once you remove the panel.

I'm thinking it is behind passenger side cover in front of rear wheel well. But cover is riveted shut at bottom. If I drill those out will it swing up like the other bay doors (probably without the shock arms)? I can then replace with screws.

I would be surprised if it is riveted. The brackets are riveted to the door, but there was a Phillips head screw holding the bracket to the frame.

The screws on mine fell out while traveling and the door started swinging. Maybe a previous owner had the same problem and riveted them instead. I put the same latch on my door as in the other compartments. A late friend went so far as to put brackets and gas struts on his so it would open and stay up like the rest.

My bad. Thought the question was with the refrigerator ice maker, not another one.

Ditto on the "my bad"--icemaker in basement is an after market addition--who knows if a shut-off valve was even installed...afraid you are on your own....

Thanks everyone for imput on shutoff valve for icemaker. Found the shut off in the secured bay front of rear tires passenger side. I drilled out rivets first but then found a single bolt underneath holding the panel shut. Replaced rivets and turned water on to icemaker. All is good.
