I don't have one any more either (Well the wires and stuff are still there and the ice maker is ...

A strange thing happened.
I found I LIKE IT THAT WAY
More room and more ice. (Well I have 4 trays if I need lots of ice).
I may, some day, replace the plumbing just in case I sell the rig.
The rest of the good news:
The fittngs and such that crack when they get frozen are all at the ends of the lines. That is one end or the other of the two bays.
on my RV, I turn off water, disconnect from city, remove about half a dozen screws reach over a divider and disconnect two quick disconnects (These are like garden hose couplings only smaller) and remove the entier outdoor assembly. Inlet, Shower, quick fill and all. I only had one other line (Black tank flush) to disconnect.
Then I can "Bench" it, fix it and replace it. (Bench being the picnic table of course)
I replaced the broken fitting and the pex and all the elbows connecting the city water to the quick fill with a short length of flexible line with the proper (1/2 inch IPT) fittings on the ends.
