Just installed a new residential fridge in our 5th wheel. I need some ideas how to keep the doors closed when we are traveling. It's a single door with freezer door on top. Thanks in advance for your help

Fridge Fixer! Works but rather pricey. His service can't be beat IMO. I had one of original ones and I broke it, by my stupidity. Contacted him and he replaced that day for free. https://www.recubed.solutions/ Also on Amazon.

Walmart or Amazon etc. Baby department. Lots or choices for child (adult) proofing items, many are applied with 3M adhesive tape. Maybe one that sticks on the side of the fridge/cabinet and the other end on the door

Blue Painters tape, I keep a couple rolls in the RV and use it for all kinds of things almost everyday.

Cheers!

It's home made, but it serves the purpose for me.

Threaded rod screws in where door hinge would

Side by side refrigerator doors I use a big Velcro strap. For the freezer bottom drawer I wedge a pillow between it and the island.

Nice! This is exactly how the factory installed residential refer locks work.

I used to use velcro, lost the piece I used si I imporovised and used one of these - Twist ties. Both work equally as good.

Well I had a fridge in my residence where the freezer door often did not stay closed..> Camping world or General RV had a plastic latch that did the job

This looks like the product.

I found a better photo but can not figure out how to link to it.

I'm not sure this is your best choice for the RV though

What I did: Cargo strap wrapped around the fridge. Worked great.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
