Residential refrigerator mounting

We have used my 2019 wildcat 37wb twice and both times the refrigerator moves during transit. It is not mounted solid and only has retainers that keep the refrigerator from walking out during transit. Problem is these retainers are getting bent trying to hold the refrigerator in place and the refrigerator is hitting the trim and damaging it. Also the retainers are hitting the refrigerator and scratching it. In addition the refrigerator will move inwards and the retainers will catch the freezer drawers causing them to open. This happened on the last trip home and the bag of ice started to melt and dripped water on the floor. Has anyone else experienced this and should residential refrigerators be mounted rigid?

Our residential refrigerator was mounted on a pallet of some kind and the refrigerator slide out. We had someone fix the refrigerator so that it couldn’t move. The refrigerator is braced in now and doesn’t move

I used some L brackets, screwed into the fridge frame in behind(access door) and just screwed some brackets in the front of fridge but not into it.


No issues.

No issues.
Can you please provide some photos? I have the same issue and haven't been able to solve it.

Thanks,

Any chance you could post some pictures? I have a residential refrigerator that keeps falling out of it's mounts (two tiny little brackets!). I've tried a few things but the wood is all particle board and is falling apart now.

Thanks,

Bruce
