My ice maker water line is leaking from the top. This was first apparent after three days of camping with 20-30 MPH, 25-degree winds blowing against the refrig side of the coach. Don't know if it somehow froze and cracked the line or if it's just a gremlin.

Anyone ever replaced that water tubing from the valve up to the icemaker unit? I cannot see how it's accessed. Probably have to remove the fridge!

Mine did the same thing. The fitting coming out of the ice maker broke. Every time it would try to make ice water would squirt out and trip the ground fault. The fridge had to be pulled out to replace the 75 cent fitting.

OK, I'll use this as my "silver-lining".

Actually, the repair shop I use told me they could probably do the repair in less than 2-hours. I was expecting $500 in labor costs, so that's a relief. I just hope the work doesn't start a chain reaction of failures.

Heck, if I knew where all them pesky little 120V wires were routed, I could get in there easy! I guess if I just disconnected all the juice and accidentally cut through some wiring, I could twist the bare ends back together and give them a good wrapping with electrical tape and save me some money. Hmmm, which blade should I use?

I changed my water line last year.Found I had to remove the furnace grill on the furnace located below to set the fridge on the floor.A real tite fit.No rocket science involved.Turn off gas and disconnect line,Disconnect electric,remove the few screws holding the unit in place and slide the unit out.After changing the line reverse the process.

Gonna take her in to the professionals this time bldrbob. The significant other says she will cover the repair costs if I promise not to even attempt to do this myself. Win-win in my book.

An update and a laugh or two. The fridge is Norcold, not Dometic, duuuhhh. Techs said they pulled the unit out and then discovered that the leak was from the line to the ice maker rubbing on something just above the valve and not the top connector. They spliced it out I guess and added some pipe insulation for protection.

They forgot to turn the gas back on so that was a little OH S*^T that worked out. Then I waited (im)patiently for my first ice cubes for 48 hours before deciding something else was wrong. The dadgummed water shutoff valve is painted black and rests against a black surface. Only took me a couple of days to find it. I just wish I hadn't opened up the side of the coach with my sawzall while trying to trace the water line.

Lesson learned: look for the simplest explanation first. Even the pros screw up once in awhile.
