Made the same thing last year with left over plywood and an old towell. The legs on mine stick down several more inches.


I just measured the width of the fridge doors and the length down to the freezer.

Did the same thing (one leg) for the 3 drawers below and left of the stove. One or two drawers always came open going down the road, now none do.

Bungee Cords & Velcro Strap

I utilize the bungee straps but wrap it twice around one of the fridge handles. I also use a velcro strap on the handles. Hasn't opened since I started doing this.

We've been using the NiteIze gear ties to keep cabinet doors etc closed underway...I'm sure they would work for fridges too. They are useful for lots of different needs.

We add a few strips of blue painters tape across the doors. Works real good. The fridge has started "walking " while traveling. I tightened down the feet and hope that cures it. Any other ideas to keep it from moving?

Did as Aqua Man did. Velcro straps attached to either side of the fridge and the freezer. Haven't had a problem since.

I had same issue, bought a couple of child safety straps at Walmart. Part of it sticks to the main refrig body and another part sticks to the doors. there is a strap that connects the two pieces. Works great and barely visible. Check them out in the baby/child section in Walmart.

In another thread, post #10 describes my solution to the problem. It also allows you to hold the doors open for ventilation during storage.

When we bought our trailer it didn't have a strap so for a while I just used an old belt.

This is my solution...

Thanks for all the great replies! This is what I love about RVing - lots of people with inventive solutions to problems.

The attached video is my solution. The block simply slides out of the frame to allow access to the refrigerator. When not in use the block sticks to the refrigerator door. When the refrigerator is to be stored, you put the block in the back of the frame, and the doors will no longer seal.

It's quick, simple, and can be easily used one-handed.

Thoughts?

Carl
