Sam, quit looking for the line "going" to the ice maker, look and follow the like coming into the bottom of that solenoid valve that goes inside your RV and most likely it will be a 1/4" line. and hopefully it will have a shutoff on it inside somewhere.

If you can find the 1/4 inch line supplying the refrigerator just cut it, fold it over and tie with a couple of wire ties. It'll be easy to splice back together when you find the real break. I wouldn't spend to much time hunting a cut off valve at this point.

When you can get to a repair center have them cap the line off inside of the MH so that you will not have this problem in the future. For now the advice about trying to clamp it off with vice grips or cutting and folding over is not bad advice.

Will look into pinching the line this morning. However it does not explain why my fridge and freezer are not keeping temp. We lost all our frozen foods!

The fridge is on and runs and set to the coldest setting but won't get cold.

Could a fuse have blown. All I know is since this water started leaking out the side of the bus the fridge has not worked correctly either. I'm so confused. Lol

Thx for all the suggestions

Sam

Do you have a Norcold fridge and have the recall done and have a black box with red led on?
You have to reset the black box with a magnet. This explains how.
If the black box gets wet the fridge shuts down.
Water may have put out flame or your control board for fridge is wet.
Use a HAIR DRYER TO DRY CONTROL BOARD.

Me thinks that you would be better served in separating the TWO very different problems into their own threads posted in the proper categories.

I am sure you would get excellent suggestions on solving your two problems a lot quicker than here.

You started out with a MAJOR water problem and have transitioned into a MAJOR fridge problem.

It would also assist people trying to help you by providing as much information about the problem, the device, your coach model and year, the device model, etc. The MORE information you can provide the better it is in attempting to solve your problems.

Maybe the flood, drown the frig. Could be the condenser or evaporator motor has quit, either will cause poor or no cold.
First thing to do is stop the water leak.

Assuming you have a standard RV refer. Those don't have motors, but many of them have cooling fans that are up above where I believe your water leak is and so should not have a problem.

But...there is electrical circuitry and wired connections in the outside compartment that could be involved with the water issue. That needs to be taken care of first...find and plug that water leak then we'll assist with the lack of refer cooling.

water leak

I had a problem like you have.
From the outside panel for fridge, disconnect the inlet line from the ice maker solenoid. Then cap the line, this will keep water from going to ref.
Hope that is all you need to do.
