Tough to put in drinks, ice tea, pop, adult beverages. Ice boxes went out a number of years ago. [emoticon]


Not with a cooler big enough to hold everything you need. 3 or 4 frozen bottles keep the whole cooler cold.

Love our ice maker too but we did get tired of adding water all the time so off to Amazon I went. The solution without breaking the bank, an ice maker that has a 2-5 gallon bottle on top to feed the ice maker. Love it!!

This or start w block ice in a yeti knock off or igloo marine cooler. It keeps solid ice for a week if it's kept shaded and access minimized.

If you have a fridge with a freezer in your rv, than the old style ice cube trays work. Takes up some freezer space but four trays of ice works well for the three of us. Fits straight into the freezer like a glove! Used to have a $150+ ice maker but got rid of it. Took up a lot of space and was always a pain to operate.

Like others have said, the ice isn't very hard, and it melts fast. It's great for drinks, but that's about all.

I love mine, but I would never attempt to use it to keep a cooler cold.
