Things flying all over in residential refrigerator

I'm hoping some of you "pro" campers can help me out. This summer we upgraded to a new 2017 Cedar Creek CKTS with a residential French door refrigerator. While on the road things slide all around and we have to be very careful opening it. I looked thru all the camper supply online sites trying to find bars that go across to hold things from taking orbit but none are wide enough for the double doors. My husband bought some tension rods we tried but they just wiggled loose. Surely since this refrigerator has been installed in campers for several years someone has come up with a solution. Any and all ideas will be wonderful, as I'm frustrated. Thanks in advance.

I just put some extra things in the fridge to hold it all tight together during travels. The best thing is a few clean, empty, small boxes so that the fridge doesn't have to waste energy cooling them.

I read in another forum where people have had good luck using shower curtain rods in residential refers.

This is *ONE* that was suggested.

As was noted above, empty boxes and plastic bins are helpful too.

This one is 19-34 inches would that be enough?

We use the small round spring loaded curtain rods in several cabinets in our trailer. They can be lengthened/shortened by simply twisting them so you can set the length/tension to whatever you desire. They hold just fine in every application we've used them in.

Ditto here, we use the curtain rods. I also use shelf liner for the fridge. Basically plastic that sits on the shelf.

Happy Camping!

We fill in the space with beer. That way my honey and I always have a cold one when we get to the CG.

For some reason, DW won't use the spring loaded rods in ours..... so we learned to put any coke cans or heavy stuff in the crisper drawers. We try not to buy gallon milk, only 1/2 gallon or less, and it goes in door shelves. Water too.

In main refrig, only stuff that won't 'slam' into things......like head of lettuce, etc.

Sure is a nice refrigerator!!!

Purchased some 2" aluminum 1/2 pans, fit in my fridge nicely, can be slid out a little for access, and hold any breakage.
