Thanks,
No I had already winterized when I read the post. Also, I had forgotten that I had started a previous thread on this topic and, if I had read it again, I would have seen the tip on that reservoir. My bad.

I put an old filter into the fridge and just activated the water dispenser. It took some time to purge the water and to start seeing the antifreeze so I suspected then there must have been some sort of reservoir for the water dispenser since the filter is not that big. I will empty and bypass it as recommended if I have to winterize next year.

I've never winterized this coach. The past two winters I just left the heat on at 55 F and all was well. This year, however, I be will having some work done during Nov/Dec and the shop could not guarantee they could always leave it inside and/or plugged in. I will de-winterize in late Dec when we head out for a 3 month trip to warmer places.

OK, now I have a question about that reservoir in the fridge. I removed the crisper to eyeball it and, while it seemed filled with the RV antifreeze, it looked diluted with water at one low point. So, I want to remove the two water lines and empty the reservoir. However, I just could not get either of the lines off.

What is the secret? They look like they are just pushed into the ends. I even heated them with a hair dryer but I could not get them to budge.

Sorry I cannot help as I do not have the Amana fridge; my relative does though and he mentioned they just pulled off. Hopefully someone else with direct experience can chime in...
