Where might I find the icemaker outlet if I don't have an icemaker?
Looking at what's wired to run off the inverter, the schematics call out an outlet for the icemaker which is located behind the icemaker.

Except we don't have an icemaker.  And the outlet isn't shown as optional (like some others are).



If...

My ice maker outlet is under the pantry cabinet.  So narrow the search to the galley area and look behind a floor cabinet that would fit the U-Line ice maker.

Yours is probably like mine. There is a double gang outlet behind the refer. Take off the refer vent & you will see the refer plugged in on one side and the other outlet is for the ice maker. One side is on the inverter and the other is not.

Thanks, Barry - we'll test that out tomorrow.  Hadn't thought of the outlets in a duplex each being on different circuits...

Steve, Michelle. Mine is outside, in the fridge compartment. There are two duplex outlets. One has a brown cover, the other a white. I do not know without looking which is inverter powered and which is not. Will look the next time I am out

Michelle! The fridge is plugged into the upper of the two, it has the brown face plate. The icemaker is plugged into the lower with the white face plate. I assume the fridge is plugged into the one with inverter power.

Horace,  In the back of the reefer  ( outside ) there are two outlets, one is 110 off the shore line and the other comes off the INVERTER. To test this, turn inverter off, use multimeter to see if you have voltage on one and then go to shore...

You can run the reefer off of the inverter.  BUT, you have to be aware of this if you are boondocking. The reefer uses a herd of amps.  I run the reefer on the inverter because when we are driving, the boost switch keeps the house batteries up...

Michael, I'm not clear on your statement about boost switch & driving?  You know that when you drive the alternator charges the house batteries.  The boost switch is intended to aid while starting with low coach starting batteries.

Here is a photo of the 2 outlets behind the refer vent cover.

Back from a day at the coach. 

We did confirm there's an inverter-powered duplex outlet behind the fridge.  Something is plugged into it (we assume the icemaker that's actually IN the fridge?).  The fridge was plugged into the non-inverted...

I had to run my refer on inverter while parked at a Wal Mart one time because I was having trouble with the LP.
It draws a LOT of amps. I don't remember how many but I realized why they don't put it on the inverter.
If you are driving with the...

I don't know why you would want to do it as it uses so...
