The light came on with lllkrob's post.
I had looked at the try, and it was not obvious that it cold be removed.
But since it can, that solves the problem.

Otherwise I do as Nlovnit does.
I was just going to suggest this. However there might be one more item you can use. Hate to say it sounds gross, but ... Go to the store and buy one of those small suction bulb tube like things that are used on newborn babies to clean their nose out.

Already suggested...

Pick up a ball valve or check out the installation as there may already be a shut off valve where the ice maker line is connected.

Assuming you have inverter or that the freezer operates while driving then add a step to your departure cucklist to just turn off the water as you pack up.

By the time you get home the icemaker should have cycled a few times and be empty.

Leave door partially open when stored.

On you startup check list add turing water snd pump on at home and dumping tray on setup at campsite to flush water out of system.

Buy one of those portable units.<200$ Ice in 10 minutes. I removed unit from my fridge to free up freezer space. No regrets. Besides it fits in one of my storage compartments which makes it very handy while sitting on the patio

What do you do when you leave the s&b? Do you then put that icemaker in a storage mode?

I modified the front of our ice maker and can now dump ice over the top. Leave the little arm up if you don't want it to produce ice. With this setup it will still dispense crushed or whole ice.

If you want some fantastic ice trays check these out.
