Tips to Enhance Your RV’s Fridge

Your RV’s fridge isn’t any better or worse than the one you’ve got at home, but it does operate under stressful conditions. The bouncing and jarring as you travel down an uneven road, the variations in weather that you experience, being hit by direct sunlight since an RV interior is smaller than a house… all contribute to your RV’s fridge getting overworked and cutting its efficiency.

Instead of resigning yourself to inefficiency, do yourself and your food a favor and take measures to help your fridge out.

Install Plastic Sliders

There are relatively cheap plastic and rubber sliders that you can install in your fridge to keep things from moving about. They’re not normally useful in a house, but in RVs they’re ideal for keeping things in place while you drive. Many a novice RVer has come to the end of driving for the day, opened their fridge for a soda or snack, and found the juice box or milk carton falling out the door right on top of them. Prevent it from ever happening by holding loose items in place.

Level Your Rig and Keep the Sun Off the Fridge

When you stop in at a campsite or RV park, especially the uneven ground of the former, take some time to get your RV nice and level. You want your RV to be level anyway for purposes of comfort, but did you know that a level RV helps your fridge to operate better too? Another thing you can do when parking is to take into account where your fridge is located within your RV. Place your RV such that the sun, whether it’s coming up or going down, doesn’t shine through a window and hit your fridge directly. Not only will it cause a slight temperature spike from mere contact alone, but it can also hit your condenser coil and overwork it, causing cooling inefficiency.
