RV Fridge Guard on sale

Yep, spending more money on The Trailer. I knew I wanted one of the Fridge Guards, but waited until we actually got it in case there were any other changes to the size of the frig.

I was quite surprised and pleased to find they're priced at about half off right now. Heck if I know how long they've been priced this way or how long it'll last, but at least it did long enough for me to order a small one, with the "milk on top" style.

Hey, always a pleasure to help folks spend THEIR money.

The door shelves are the warmest place in the fridge, in my experience. I would think, with the Fridge Guard, they'll be even warmer.
Rather than trying to find stuff that's behind a plastic curtain, I'd recommend keeping stuff in open containers so you can quickly open the door, grab the container and close the door. Then, you can rummage through the container, looking for the brie.

I'm pleased with the way mine works, I think it does keep the refer colder in that it keeps warm from entering when opening. I put very little items on the door.

Thanks to you Jim we also purchased the fridge guard . We found it really helps keep the cold in . We also have fans inside to circulate the air . It also helps from keeping food from falling out when you open the door . Once before the fridge guard , opened door and blueberries went everywhere. We have removed the guard in the winter and put back the freezer compartment , but twice now in hot temps have the guard installed have enjoyed temps in the 30's . We have the 4.3 , besides fans and insulationing the cabinet , the guard helps maintain the low temps . We don't put much on the door either , not expecting those items to be really cold . Pat

I ordered the small since that works for the 6-7 cu ft frigs. the frig in the 2nd Gen 21 is 6 cu ft.

And I already got a shipping notice from the company that it's been packed up and is on its way here! Dang!

I shall report back as to the fit when it gets here.

This is one of the main reasons I wanted to get this! I got a set of those pole thingies and I just couldn't get them to work so they got flung somewhere, heck if I know where.

Hi Laura really helps keeping the food on shelves . You don't want to pack food in refrigerator tight. .Refrigerator works better if there is air circulation around your food items .So you will be able to see what you want . Yep used those spring bars too , not impressed . What a good sale . Pat

Folks:
Several of you have been fairly enthusiastic about the fridge guard in the past. Are you still using it? If it is still working well for most of you, I'm likely to purchase one. We have a 2015 17B with the 4.3 Cu. ft. fridge--I believe I need the small size. Any thoughts as to whether MOT or MOB is preferable? Thanks for your input.

Dave

When you call them and give them your size they can explain which model is best, I'm using the one from my 21' Escape and just cut it down to fit, mine has the MOB which means large panels in middle to allow access.
