Outside kitchen "security question"

I don't know if this has been asked before, we have a week long trip for July and I was wondering about the outside kitchen? Well, here's my ?

"Anyone with the outside kitchen, has had any problems with unwanted visitors?
(Critters) Do you leave the door open during the day?

Any help (suggestions) would be appreciated.
Thanks!

We leave ours open all day unless it's raining and even then often leave it open anyway.

We do close every night.

However, we're not in terribly "woodsy" environments and more stay at rv parks.

Leave ours open all day. Close only at night. Stay mostly in provincial campground.

Leave ours open as well all day and do close every night. The only critters I ever had were my buddies grabbing a beer. :0)

Ours stays open whenever we're at the camper, day or night, sometimes we're not even nearby. Never had a problem with a critter, and we camp in areas with huge raccoon populations. Gets closed when we go to bed.

Mine is open right now and will stay open until bedtime. No critters, although a seagull once tried to fly in and grab some chips we left on the counter. I close it at night as it tends to better insulate my bunk room so that it cools down.

Same here. Open when we wake up, close it when we go to bed.
As someone said the only "critters" I've had an issue with are my buddies raiding the fridge.
