Ice maker water line

We just purchased a 2019 37mdqs Pinnacle and near the refrigerator there is a sticker that says the valve on the waterline to the ice maker must be turned off if the weather gets below 34degrees. We will be in the rv during the winter so we want to make sure itís turned off. Does anyone know where to turn it off at? We have the whirlpool fridge with water and ice maker in the door.

You can look behind the drawers next to the fridge. If the pinnacle is like the north point, thereís a second hidden **** off under the floor of the island, next to the drain.

What Tom said, I will say when I looked for it under the stove draw next to the fridge, it was way in the back and up off the floor. I almost missed it, but spotted it with the flash light.

I just purchased a 2018 36kpts and what I figured out I believe is the water supply valve is located on the left side of the island ....below the bottom panel...the valve at the rear corner of the fridge in the low point drain valve .....since I also had a cutoff valve under the camper for the low point for the fridge I left the valve open back at the corner of the fridge ....( could. To reach it anyway ). I also blew my system out with air to determine which valves control what and where.....then we loaded it up with antifreeze except for the fridge....

Sjkelly328 Most residential fridges have 2 drain lines for the fridge. Other owners with different Pinnacles have found them. When you find yours, please post where you found them on your unit to help the next guy.

I have my trailer set up on a farm in south Alabama for the winter. We usually get a few days of hard freezes each year. The water line goes through the slide so that makes it vulnerable to the cold.
I got a water filter bypass for the refrigerator. Blew out the line with air. I then cut off the valve under the sink and opened the low point drain.
I also added cut off valves to the lines going to the washer so I can do the same to it.

I can use the kitchen and bathroom when I'm there. I usually try and leave some kind of heat on but I can easily and quickly blow out the rest of the lines if I have to.

Using air... I am able to find only one low point drain for the fridge...and one input water line to the fridge....air blew water out of the dispenser as well...ice maker freezes anyway so not as concerned but still winterized best we could...

You want to shut off the valve in the island and open the outside fridge drain line to let he water out, and leave it open.
Don’t worry about the valve beside the fridge behind the drawer.
The island valve shuts the water off BEFORE it goes outside under the slide where it would freeze.

All we did was wrap the track that carries the water line and elec with foam pipe insulation. If you're going to be in the cold climate for a long period add a 6' heat tape. Just watch how you install it so it doesn't get pinched.
