Uline Ice Maker Update

The dealer we took our Uline Ice Maker to called and said he had completed his check and found nothing wrong with the unit. So, off to Longview we went to pick it up. Upon arrival we asked many questions and he had no answer as to why it would trip our GFI breaker. Other than he did say they don’t recommend the unit be plugged into a GFI breaker. We explained that wasn’t our doing it came that way from Newmar.

His helper came in and told us that he did find a very small pin hole in the !/4” plastic line that  runs from the water valve to the inlet. It was so small he said that a drip of water would appear only every now and then. He said he moved the line  from where it was being pinched and the water started flowing out the line. Could this have been our problem? Time will tell when we connect it again in the  motorhome. Got back that evening hooked it up and it’s been running like a champ. The volume of ice making also appears to be faster. Did this slight pin hole leak cause enough moisture to trip the GFI? I really don’t know but is working now.


Last night we watched the NASCR All Star race and those last ten laps turned out to be the best we’ve witnessed in a while. We would have liked to have see younger brother Kyle win but Kurt’s win was a good alternative. Today is the official ingurgitation of the five to the NACSAR Hall of Fame. We are so glad that Dale Sr. will be one of the five. image Dale was Sandy’s and my driver when we watched NASCAR races long ago. We were so sad when we lost him to the point we quit watching races for about a year.

Tomorrow night I will spend the night with VA Shreveport at the Sleep Apnea clinic where I get to try the CPAP machine.  Hope I do better as the first night I spent with VA was a very restless night.

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers

  1. Glad you got that ice maker fixed. Sounds like it must have been that leak...go figure!

    Years ago...I really mean years ago I grew up in Daytona Beach and my best friend was Fireball Roberts daughter, Pam. Spent many days at the Daytona Speedway. Do you remember him? He was killed in a race at the speedway.

    Take care,
