Turn it off and prop the door open. Use a bungie to keep it from swinging.

Also, put an open box of baking soda in the fridge to absorb odors.

Thanks, I have done the baking soda , I thought some one may have a way to hold the door open , like a 1 inch or so and the door doesnít swing closed. I drive my class b around a good bet in town when not camping. I didnít understand how the bungee cord would keep it open .

Put something long on a shelf so the door won't close all the way, then use the bungie to keep the door as closed as it can.

Or wedge something in the door opening, and use the bungie.

A friend of mine owned a used appliance store. He didn't like the looks of having all the doors open on fridges in the showroom. He always used charcoal briquettes in each fridge and freezer compartment. He said they never got moldy or smelly, and made the fridges look more appealing than if all the doors were opened. If you are driving around a lot, it would be better to have the doors closed so as not to cause any damage to the doors.

Check to see if your refrigerator door lock has a 2nd slider section on it. My Roadtrek has this, and it holds the door open about .25in. when not being used.
