Tommy Bahama Ice Maker

We have had our Tommy Bahama AS for just over a year now and when we wish to use the icemaker we just assumed you removed it from its drawer, placed it on the bar, filled it with water and turned it on.

Today while digging around in the deep depths of the bar (completely need a new post for WHY I was futzing around under there), I noticed there is a third outlet underneath the bar with nothing plugged into it.

Think, think, think.

I was able to plug the ice maker into the third outlet. Now the ice maker will stay in the drawer and make its ice and we will have reclaimed a lot of extra bar space!

Here are some pictures on how I routed the cord:

Are we the only ones whoís ice maker was not already plugged in this way?

Tommy Bahama Ice Maker

Inspired by the tommy Bahama setup we built an ice maker into the wardrobe closet which was converted to a pantry (international serenity). It gets hot in there to run well unless you vent.

We did two things:

1. Added a fan to draw air in and vent into the open space below the cabinet

2. After we realized that was not enough, we then Cut the bottom part of the wardrobe door off, and added some clips. It can close up while traveling or we can remove a Lowe square portion of the door when Parked exposing the ice maker and providing ventilation. This was the most effective mod. (Not pictured in the photo - this was pre Ďhack the doorí)

Donít just close it up in there it will get too hot and wont be able to product good ice. At least thatís what we found... ice machine temp was hitting over 100 degrees

Just a tip!

Very nice! We have an Opal as well and would take it with us not for the built in ice maker in the TB. I am a nugget ice snob!
