Freezer door swung open and smashed my TV

This weekend the freezer door swung back not very hard but enough to catch the corner of the television and smash the screen 2015 27RL I S anyone else have issues with this poor design?

Sounds like it was opened pretty hard if it broke the TV...
Sorry for your loss. Did the TV come with the camper or did you install it?
Is it possible to install the TV so that it cannot be damaged? Some mounting brackets cause the TV to stick out more than others, or allow the TV to pivot. A pic of the configuration would be nice.
Maybe these campers need some kind of doorstop to keep the door from impacting the TV.

If you have a residential fridge, you need to secure the door yourself, unlike the latching propane models. We installed a child proofing device on ours to ensure we never have this. Good luck.
Working because we have to - camping because we want to.

Yes it's the TV and mount the game with the trailer, didn't hit very hard but enough to crack the underscreen if that makes sense. And yes there should be a better way to stop the door from swinging back, that was the freezer door that hit the TV the refrigerator part of the door would hit the mantle over the fireplace if allowed to swing back too, poor design
