The wife has put the dishwasher on a must have status, and I have put the ice maker on the must have, but of course we may not know better.
Is there any concern with winterizing these items?Our current wash machine turned out to be far easier than expected, so Iwould assumethe dishwasher will be fairly easy, but worried about the ice maker.

Also, as a vacationer, is there issues withgetting bad taste out of the ice? (clorox, antifreeze, general muck)

I enjoy my ice maker and it's super easy to winterize. I don't have the dishwasher because my wife and I don't like them. As for any bad taste, I've never experienced it but the Jack Daniels would probably cover it up anyway

how/ where would one blow out the icemaker water line versus adding the pink stuff. Would it clear when blowing out at the city water hook up if the arm in the icemaker is down?

Turn the line off under the sink and then go outside the RV and remove the lower panel of the fridg. You'll see a clear 1/8 inch water line that goes up to the ice maker that is conectected to a solenoid. When you remove that line, the water runs out. With the line removed, you can also run some pink stuff through the line running from the sink area to the solenoid if you want. I didn't put any pink stuff in the Ice maker itself because I was worried about getting it out.
