We have the same 'Fridge in ours, works great too! Had to visit Walmart to get spring rods since the RV ones tended to be too short.
During PDI our tech was about to discard the shipping lock bolt, but we kept it to lock the doors during travel, it screws (12-24 thread) into the frame. I took an Aluminum rod, threaded both ends & use two vinyl coated fender washers to make a hold- open rod to use when the unit is stored & fridge is off.
Hadn't heard the 36 hour while traveling thing before, but we had no problem throughout our first trip that lasted 5+ weeks.
Enjoy your new Creek, travel safe & enjoy the journey!
