Yes on our Norcold there are plastic latches that will keep the door locked in a slightly open position so air can get in and out but the doors cannot swing or be open in the way.

If mine's going to sit idle for a while, I always wipe the entire inside with a bleach-water mix to sanitize it.

Then, of course... I leave the doors open!

open with locks extended to prevent accidental latch.

When not in use, leave them open.

Here's a scenario for you all to contemplate.


Residential fridge on its own slide (with the stove). When it is in the closed position, the fridge is up against the kitchen island making it impossible to keep the doors open.

You can`t even leave them cracked open just a bit or is it too tight a fit?

I can't imagine the fit being so tight the doors could not be cracked open just enough to let air inside. But, I guess it could happen!

I use the little plastic latches along with a kitchen towel wedged between the fridge and freezer doors. Too many times I've found my fridge closed up tight despite using the little clips after a short drive. So when I get to storage, I open them ALL the way and wedge them against the bathroom door. I just close them back up as part of my prep routine when I go retrieve it from storage so they're secure while under way.
