So I have another question. The manual says to sanitize the fresh water tank with a mixture of chlorine and water. I am assuming this is the tank where the hose hooks into. How do you get this mixture into the tank?

There should be two hookups on the side of the TT. One you can screw a hose ONTO, the other is a gravity fill port with a larger opening that a hose will fit INTO. that's the one that fills the FW tank. If you check around in cabinets inside, you may see the green/white hose that goes into the floor above the FW tank. Follow the upper end to the outside wall (if visible) and that will give an idea where it is outside. Mix the chlorine with a few gallons of water first, pour it in, then fill with hose, and let it sit for awhile to disinfect.

If there isn't a label on the inside then check on the backside

You've got your fridge set too cold. Below freezing in the refrigerator section is a bit much.

Dial it back to 5 and see if you don't get ice on top of your beverages any more.

My Norcold at 1 keeps the beverages cold, the cold cuts and milk fresh.

The freezer will do 4 trays of ice a day with no problems.

I looked at our water hookup. We do not have two ports to fill. We just have one where the hose hooks up to. then there is a handle you switch to fill the fw tank. But no gravity fill.

Consider yourself lucky. Hard plumbing from the city water connection prevents the hose from falling out and having 15 minutes of water on the ground.

There should be a winterizing bypass where you normally pump antifreeze into the system.

Disconnect the city water.
Put the antifreeze pickup tube into the jug of water with the correct amount of bleach added.
Run the pump in winterizing mode with AND FW fill mode.
That should pump sanitizing solution into the FW tank.
