I'm sure you get the picture.
Our 2018 195rb has a 3 cu ft Dometic, like many other SLX's. It has a gray catch that is so hard to press, we would have never guessed it would release the door on its own. But a close look shows it only catches by maybe 3/32", despite being so hard to press. Nothing to adjust, It's just made that way. Door hinges are as high as they can go, too.
When we get back home, I'll come up with some sort of travel latch. For now, I stuck a tension rod between the door and the dinette seat. Happy trails.
My mind's can see the mess and you getting boiling mad. That would really be bad to have happen.
I use the small grey stops to hold the fridge and freezer open when not in use. Those switches on our fridge keep the door open about 1/2 inch to let things stay dry when not in use. I think someone has told you that already.
I just make sure the doors are latched with the factory latch before we head out. The old camp trailers we had did have a extra pin to hold the doors closed.
I hope that never happens again.
