Those of you that have residential refrigerators in your RV, how do you keep the doors from opening while you travel?

I installed some latches, don't ask the name as I have long forgotten, got the info from a Friend’s 2015 Jayco and ordered on line. Plus, we use a section of Pool Noodle between doors and Island Counter

There are brackets on the cabinet frame around the refrigerator and then bungee cords go through the door handles and hook on those brackets.

Simple 1" wide velcro strip wrapped around the two handles. Also wedge a pillow between the Island and the drawer freezer.

friend of ours had that happen, i gave him a couple of the little bungees with the ball and looped and hooked them, good to go and then keep them in the drawer.

I have the Fridge Fixer and it works very well. Our fiver has a Insignia refrigerator that does not have handles that accommodate a velcro strap that we were able to use on previous campers. Here is a link to it:

A pair of $3.50 window latches do the job for us.
