Default Keeping Refrigerators Clean in an RV

We've noticed that after we're done with a trip that even if we clean the RV Refrigerator in our GW Legend SE, that some mold will still grow in there causing a very difficult cleaning project--cleaning mold out from between the radiator fins is brutal. How does every one else handle this phenomenon? I presume this is something that everyone has to deal with, no?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Leave the refrigerator door open between trips when it is turned off so it is vented. Our 3-way Dometic even has a latch that pulls out so the door stays slightly propped open about a quarter inch and latched so you can drive around without it swinging all the way open.

I do two things. I keep the fridge doors open, and I place a small can of Damp-Rid in each compartment. If the humidity is low, then mold can't really gain a foothold.
