Camping Wprld had the spring loaded fridge bars that help keep the stuff on the shelves in place from banging the door open. I know it's not suppose to happen, and the door latch is secure BUT they give me peace -of-mind on the road. They are cheap - about $10

On the road for the first time

I haven't had problems with shifting of refrigerator contents since I replaced the previous owner's bar refrigerator in my Overlander. On two separate trips the entire refrigerator broke loose from its moorings and emptied its entire contents onto the floor . . . didn't do anything good for the appearance of the cheap, brown, indoor-outdoor carpeting. Since my Dometic 3-Way refrigerator was installed ten years ago, the only real problem I have had with the refrigerator contents was when a can of Pepsi exploded when I was traveling from Kansas to Rocky Mountain National Park . . . none of the contents were spared the Pepsi bath . . .

I must admit that I don't take particular precautions when loading my refrigerators. They are both smaller, below counter models so there isn't much extra room when basic supplies for a week or more are packed.

I'm not much of a risk-taker. The wine rides in the truck with us.



Did someone say Klondike Bar?

Minno stands for Minnesota Olssons. I grew up on a bayou off the Grand River in Michigan, and fished pretty much every day. I still enjoy fishing but do it rarely nowadays. My boys fish, as I took them when we camped while they were growing up. Hubby never fished growing up, and doesn't like seafood either. He indulges me occasionally by being my trolling motor when we're canoeing.

We have used these for years, and they work quite well. They let you tuck everything up against the back wall of the fridge to keep things from shifting around too much. We have never had anything fall out of the fridge since we started using them. They have single rod and double rod versions. I suppose they would even hold bait containers in place...

I find we always over pack in the beginning of a trip so there is alot less space for stuff to move around. It's on the way home that the spring bars pay off - a half full jar of relish, or a jar of jam sliding around is enough to pop open the door in a turn.

I agree on the plastic egg carrier - they do not leak and hold the eggs great. Small (tiny stuff) rubber maid or disposable containers are great for left overs but those are far and few when I travel. Other stuff just gets condensed into bags - pickles are one to go into zip locks. I have a small fridge compared to most so we have come real good at jamming stuff in there.

I used a small 12v muffin fanfrom a computer (2 inch size) and direct wired to the fridge circuit so when it's on the fan is on - get rid of the battery powered one. Cuts down on batteries and wire tied to the bottom of the shelf takes up zero room.

Beer and sodas and large bottles of OJ are in a cooler. Less work for the fridge to re cool from openning the door for those more 'frequent' needs. Besides the beer is ice COLD.

Proof!

Here's a pic of our first camp in Yosemite. Great weather, not crowded (by Yosemite standards), and everyone had a great time.
