Adding Ice Maker to Norcold N821

Has anyone ever added an ice maker to a Norcold fridge? Any reason why you couldn't do it? THanks.

I took mine out of my 821. It takes up about 1 cubic foot of valuable real estate! Just one more thing to winterize.

That is very interesting. I didn't think the 821 came wired for an ice maker nor was it pre-wired. Did you put it in or did it come that way or what? Thanks.

Sorry, I wrote too soon! I have an N842IM, which came with the ice maker. You may want to go to the Thetford site and download manuals for the 841 to see how the ice maker is installed. BTW, I still think the ice maker takes up way too much space.

Save yourself freezer space, buy a portable ice maker, but buy one from Target, Wall Mart, etc. for about $109 - 119 on sale. The ones from the big camping supply stores are twice the price.

I had one also. Took it out. Takes up too much space and the Norcold has a hard enough time keeping ice cream frozen without trying to make ice with ? water. Plus winterizing one more thing. Many better alternatives for ice.

Thought I commented.. Norcold and Dometic use the same Ice Maker line (May or may not be different models, about the only difference is the plug on the cord). They have the same issues.

I took mine out, put in a pair of Rubbermaid ice cube trays.

MORE ice, Faster, and if I really need ice I can put in 2 more trays.

More room in the freezer.

In short. many good things happend when I pulled that turkey.

If you want it, and happen to be near Upstate SC.. it's yours. Save for one line that's shot.

I just replaced my 841 Norcold with a Whirlpool residential, it gives me almost 3 more cuft, with an icemaker. I removed the icemaker from the Norcold complete, so it's available if anyone is interested.
