Does anyone know what this plastic piece is for?

I found a blue plastic piece in my 14 Flagstaff labeled Domestic. I assume it's for the fridge but what is it used for?

It is used to hold the fridge door open//ajar when the fridge is turned off in storage. Keeps air circulating in the box.

IIRC, propping the doors open when not in use.

Note that this works well when the trailer is in storage, but if I find that if forget to take out before moving the trailer I usually need to scour the entire trailer to try and find where they flew off to while the trailer was in motion.

I have two, one for my freezer and one for fridge. I have not had any probelms with them falling out. I install the so the clip on the fride that keeps the doors closed goes through the slot and then push until it clicks. Works like a charm. I put them in when I am tearing down and leave them in while I pull home and they stay in while in storage and while I tow to my next destination.

I've got two of them, but when in storage, I just leave my frig and freezer doors wide open. Been doing it for over 30 years, no problem. But.....you've got to remember to close them before you tow!!!!!

Yup, that's the way. In the photo by pvillaby you can tell it's not clicked in all the way.
