Transporting stuff in the Fridge

Finally got the 26BH ready for her first trip. Just a quick overnighter, weather, personal commitments finally let us go. All the systems have been checked and rechecked.

Went out this morning and started the fridge cooling on propane... Then I got to thinking....are there any tricks or cautions to transporting food in the fridge. I'd hate to get to the camprgound and have it look like I threw a bunch of food in a blender and hit the High button....


As always, guidance would be appreciated

We just keep each shelf full that way nothing can shift. If a shelf is empty there is no problem.

Cans are the biggest problem as they tend to roll.

We use something like these bars. They work very well.

We use two of the "double bar" version from this link on every trip and have had no issues.
For the door... if the slots aren't full... we roll up a dish towel and put it in open area - then just take it out during setup.

I just pack up and go, remember to open the door slowly when you arrive. Like the airlines say, contents may have shifted during flight

We just think about what would be a mess if it spilled. Then we use things like bagged fruit, lettuce, a couple of cans on their side, and so forth to keep those items from moving around and spilling. Once we stop, and we open the frig for the first time, we open the door slowly. We have yet to have anything fall out or make a mess. We also do the same in our pantry cabinet, where we have had a few things fall out when the door was opened. Luckily we have never had a mess.

X4. We have had great luck with these. Not saying there hasn't been any close calls lol. No matter what you use always take caution when opening the fridge for the first time after trip.
