Here is what we used. Easy to see from the driver's seat before moving the bus. We attached them using Goop adhesive to insure that we did not cut the wires in the door that are part of the anti-condensation circuit (installed in some refrigerators). We purchased the hooks at West Marine.

we also have a dbl hung window type latch on our curved shower door (installed by the previous owner after an expensive lession). we have locking pins through the  alum.edges of our sliding glass mirror doors,    basically latches or hooks  on every door  or slider..

Sometimes the more I think about something the less I think about something.    As soon as I save a little money my bus finds out.                                      Why grab a plane when you can take the bus ?                         If I'm wrong 10% of the time how can the "Queen" be right 100%

Check the child proof locks section at your local walmart or a hardware store. That's where I found what I used on my fridge. Here is a link showing some choices..... http://www.epinions.com/t-child-proof-refrigerator-lock  Easy to install, no drilling, and works great.

We use a simple keeper from a wrecked trailer we found at a junk yard, it's simular to what camping world sells but much older and sturdier      http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/no-mold-refrigerator-door-holder/28735      ours mounts between the upper door and lower door and swings out of the way for use and swings back between the doors and holds them closed on the road.

I just put some velcro with the adhesive backing on the door and side, works like the hooks but no drilling simple and effective.........

We used the same thing Dave used in his pics. New bus has a big fridge with bottom sliding drawer. Havent got to the point yet to figure out what we will do to keep it closed.
