Thor Tuscany 40RT Freezer Lock?

Just got this coach and it seems to have quite a lot of issues (par for the course I guess). Service appointments are hard to get, so need to solve some stuff myself. One of the issues is the freezer. There is a nice lock on the fridge door, but nothing on the freezer and it constantly opens doing right turns even if there is nothing in there? I am planning to install my own lock but I have two questions:

1. Shouldn't this have come with some kind of locking mechanism from the factory?

2. If it does not, what locks do other folks use and suggest? I did find the same one on the fridge door on Amazon so could try that, but not sure if that is the best option for the freezer or not.

Suggestions would be appreciated!

It is a Whirlpool 20CF French Door fridge, looks just like this one:

Attached is a photo from the Thor site as the one they show for the current model is the one I have, and you can see it has a lock at the top, but nothing for the freezer?

I have seen Thor use a strap that wraps in between the top doors and the lower freezer door to hold it shut.

Hi there…we have the same coach and same issue. We use a bungee through the top doors attaching to the freezer and that works. Also have the same issue with the kitchen drawers and do the same thing; bungee through the handles and the drawers stay shut.

Thanks for the replies! I have a couple of options to try but the bungee cord is a good one until I find something more permanent.
