Refrigerator/freezer door

When you have your TT in storage for a period of time, maybe a couple of weeks or longer, do you leave the doors to the refrigerator & freezer open or closed? This is my first TT and I know if you leave a house unit closed and not running it stinks!!!

I keep them open even if ever so slightly.

Always leave it open when not running.

Not only do I leave the reefer and freezer doors open, I will open my roof vents as well as a couple sliding windows, all about an inch when I get back from a trip. Luckily I have covered parking and opening it up like this vents out the cooking and other smells made during the trip. In about a week, I will close it all up again but my 2008 still smells the way it did in 2008.

Thanks for the replies, I saw those little gray tabs on the doors, I'll go out and prop the doors open a little. It's hot here in San Jacinto now, low 90's so I did open the vents and pop out the windows a little.

My fridge stays on from March thru November. It takes very little electricity or propane to run it. That way it's always ready.

I leave mine open. I wasn't aware of the little grey clips, so I'll have to look for those. I'll be leaving the vents open also, as soon as I install some maxair vent covers.
