refrigerator door sagging

I have a 2010 surveyor 189. The frig door started sagging after several trips . Thought it was a bent henge but replacing it did not help. I am probably loading the door (inside) with too much weight but that is where much storage space is. Now I put a thin piece of wood under the door when I am traveling to help support the door. Has anyone had a problem like this and what can be done to fix it. I have not checked to see if the door is square any more or not but I don't think it is.

We are new to RVing and bought a used Cardinal. I've noticed one of the fridge doors is a little bit lower than the other, and I hadn't thought of the weight...I'll take your advice and block it when on the road. Thanks!

Most refer. doors are adjustable at both the top and bottom hinge. Check the squareness of your unit by measuring diagonally, corner to corner. if they are not the same the refer. is "racking" due to poor design or, as you say, too much weight.

Most hinges have slots to adjust the hinge from side to side. You might slide the top hinge away from the latch and the bottom toward the latch.

Just wondering... Did you check the bottom trim? One of our trim screws on the underneath the door became loose enough to interfere with the door latching. I tightened the screw, then no more problems.

Thanks Flaggy, I'll check that this week. We're heading to Charleston (SC) Friday for a few days and I'll work on it before we head out.
