So our first trip out with the new TT and we had all spaces packed, including the outdoor fridge. Maybe I just didnt think about it, but at our first stop I opened the main door and the fridge door had opened and all drinks were jumping around the entire time. Sticky soda all over the place. I never thought that I had to secure that door, if so, they should had supplied a pin. Also, I need to secure all the drinks within the fridge as well.
How do any of you do this? To fix it short term I just had a ratchet strap around it with rags for protection.

I knew that was a possibility when I bought our camper and bought one of those clips you can use to child proof your fridge or oven door ect.?Works great and cheap.They just have sticky tape on the back sold obviously in baby department for like 5 bucks..
My fridge has a strap that is connected to the wall behind the fridge on each side and we hook it each time we head out. We generally put water on the top to shelfs and other drinks on the door and lower level, this way if the water falls, no big deal. We do not travel with anything that must stay cold just in case the trip is longer and the fridge gets warm. Upon arrival, open door slowly and catch anything that has fallen. Good luck.

I do the above, too....and as added caution, when I had something that was particularly heavy and sticky (think -- big huge jar of sweet pickles)...I stuffed towels around it because the fridge was almost empty and it just seemed heavier than the rods could hold.
I don't know about an outdoor fridge, didn't know there was such a thing but we also use the expandible curtain rods. Just a buck or more. Also china freight has bags of small bungies that work well also. They streach from shelf to shelf in any direction where ever needed...... One more thought.... Open the door SLOWLY. ...
