I would like to put a ice maker where the washer dryer does in our fiver. Is there any wiring for it? There is a panel with four screws maybe there? I would just go and take it off and look but it over 90 degrees in the trailer now. There are the pipes for the washer - dryer but I see no outlet unless it under the cover.

If you are not dying to get into the panel today, a quick call to the dealer or factory tomorrow should get you a quick answer. There could be a breaker labeled washer/dryer in you breaker panel which may give you a clue if there is any wiring.

No breaker in the fuse panel and if I had to pull a wire in it would be a fit.

If your RV has the W/D prep package the wiring is there already. Package consists of hot, cold water lines w/ faucets, drain standpipe plumbed into grey tank, and electricity receptacle. Remove the cover, you should find 14/2 AC wire ready for receptacle if one isn't present already. It may not be on a separate circuit, a VOM may be helpful here.

Ray,
I turned the air conditioner on today and took off the panel and found no wires. I have no idea how hard it will be to get to the fuse panel. The water closet is between the place for the washer/dryer and the fuse panel. This makes no sense why they would install the pipes but no wire. I sometimes think this one was built before vacation or on a Monday.

It appears a phone call to Arctic Fox is your best option. Most 5er's either have a 120VAC receptacle close, or a flat cover over the outlet box with the wire stubbed off inside. It's a shame RV's don't have a wiring schematic included with the owners manual.
