I have two issues that I could use some help with. One is the ice-maker supply line, the second is extending the power cord on my "Pirit" heated hose.
1. The ice-maker supply line in question is behind the panel located on the outside of the rig. There is also the plastic valve assembly to consider. Now that the weather is getting close to freezing, I need to come up with a way to protect these items without losing functionality...I really like my ice. Has anyone come up with a solution for this? Do you think that heat tape would work on such a small plastic line etc? Surprisingly there is a 120 volt outlet in that space 6" from the line in question.
2. My "Pirit" heated hose came with a 6' "+or-" length power cord from the factory...I got the minus length.
I need to add an extension cord to make it work out. The manufacturer states that this is not an option and should never be done. I'm thinking that with such low amp draws that there is no reason not to. Liability is the only reason I can come up with why they would say this. If you had an unprotected connection in the rain for example, issues could arise.
Anyone have any thoughts on how to deal with these issues?
