Outside Kitchen

We have always stored our unit on the side of our houses with it tied to power, looks like we will have to store it off site for a couple of months and I am concerned about the outside refrigerator and mold. What suggestions do you have with this issue. There isn't enough room to leave the door opens when the cover is down. I though about removing the doors but that seems extreme. Any ideas would help-thanks

Did you take a look to see how easy it is just to take it out? Mine is held by 2 screws from below. To take the door off you'd have to remove it anyway.

Can you just prop the door open somewhat?

We just prop the door open. Never had any mold at all in two years of winter storage. Just make sure the inside is dry and clean when you put it away.

I used to unplug the fridge and stick the cord inside...this kept it open just a bit. Never had any trouble.

We use a 6" piece of pool noodle slit down the side on the door frame. Keeps it open about 1". Never had any issues. Also have a strap around entire fridge while traveling to make sure door stays closed in case things shift and hit the door. Use the same strap to keep door from swinging all the way open when storing.

PS: Pool noodles are RVers duct tape.

I guess my frig and kitchen door have less clearance no way will the door stay open more than 1/2" when the outside door is closed. . If it ever stops raining here in Texas I will turn it off and leave it open all day. Good idea about removing it but sounds like a lot of trouble. Thanks for the suggestions.
