Double fridge!

I have a 2015 Winnebago tour with a large 2 door refrigerator! Can't keep doors closed when traveling! Screws that hold latches on top have pulled out! Any idea out there?

If you Google "RV refrigerator door latch" much will come up in links and also images.

You can buy latches for RV refrigerator doors, at $20-$30 or more, or adapt other items like the above video. Childproof latches for cabinets and doors can also be used, or just a bungee cord or nylon strap across the door fastened on either side.

We have 2 door, 1 drawer freezer in our Bounder. Latches that came with MH didn't work out. Used child safety latches bought at Wal Mart. They work great.

We had same problem. tied several times to "fix" the refrigerator plastic latches. Tried longer screws, but it just kept coming loose. We solved it with two child safety latches placed around the door handles before we travel. This eliminates the need to push door release and doors open and close like home refrig. Simple solution that worked well for us.

If you have a residential refrigerator there is this latch:

"gmann55".....There are all types of locks, some are cumbersome and some are hard to operate. If it's a side by side, you can simply take a piece of plastic "C" channel about 8" long and slip it over the top of both doors, open side down. With the "C" channel in place you can't open one without opening the other. You're only difficulty will be finding a piece of plastic the right size. Aluminum "C" channel will also work, just cover it with something like Gorilla tape to keep it from scratching.
