Can't speak for all rigs, but many RV manufacturers use long bolts thru the floor that screw to the refridge feet. However, 200lbs might be a tad light for a std residential fridge.......

When I install a residential fridge, I drill holes through the side of the fridge (not freezer) and into the wall, being sure I hit a stud or something. These holes are only about an inch or so in from the front edge. Then I go around back and drive two screws through the bottom frame into the floor.

I use 2" wide velcro to keep the fridge door from flying open.

Drilling holes in a refrigerator can be risky. There are unseen wires, refrigerant lines and heater wires in the walls.

My preference would be to box it in, top to bottom, so it can not tip out and then block the front bottom from sliding out.

This method has worked on my boat, under very rough conditions, for many years.

Brackets at the bottom holding the refer frame to the floor and a header across the top to keep it from tipping out. Of course it's in it's own little compartment so no fore and aft movement. Works great.
