Outdoor Kitchens w/ Fridge

Hi, We just picked up a 2016 29.5BHDS yesterday. It has the outdoor kitchen with a dorm size fridge. I know that in the unit when the rv has no power going to it, you leave the doors open on the fridge and freezer to stop mold growth and so it doesn't smell. On the outside fridge, the door cant stay open because it hits actual door on the camper wont allow it. I can unscrew it from the floor where the factory anchored it, and maybe slide it back, but not sure if there is room. Should I take the fridge out and store in the unit with the door open and put back in the normal spot in the spring?

What are your thoughts?

It doesn't need to be opened much; just a crack. I usually put something in the way, so that it won't shut when I close the kitchen door. But of course, you need to remember to close it before towing it anywhere.

We also have the outdoor kitchen and since the majority of our camping is 'dry', we use the fridge (and often the microwave when not using the generator) as storage lockers. A soft skinny dry sponge is enough to give the fridge a crack for air flow. We also have a few rolls of blue paper towels that we stash here-and-there to curb normal rocking-and-rolling. We use our picnic table cushions and tablecloth to pad the rest, especially the bumper BBQ.

Put something in the door to wedge it open and a damp rid in the outdoor kitchen. This area is prone to dampness due to the sink and temp fluctuations.
