Most RV ice makers are the same as residential ice makers, except the RV ice maker has separate power supply whereas the residential ice maker runs directly from the refrigerator power supply.

1. Turn on fridge
2. Make sure water is turned on to the ice maker
3. Make sure the ice maker is plugged in. There is usually a duplex receptacle behind the outside access door.
4. Lower the bail of the ice maker

It can take up to 24 hours for an RV freezer to produce the first batch of ice.

On my Itasca there is a water shut off valve under the kitchen sink at the water filter. Make sure it is open.

Water pump supplies the water, just leave it on. You will get used to it cycling when the ice dumps.

We don't boondock, but I've recently read here that the motor to drive the ice cubes out in to the tray is driven by 120vac so the inverter would need to be on I guess.

Don't know if that's true but I read it recently and made a mental note of it.

Sorry, yes it needs to have a inverter to power it. We do this when we travel, fridge on propane, water pump on to supply water to ice maker, inverter to supply power to ice maker. Same as boondocking.
