Refrig slipped out!,,

While I was hauling my 1982 Burro home, I must have hit too many bumps......the installed refrig popped out of the frame, screws and all. Has anyone done some type of framing behind the fiberglass to stabilize this? I have access from the outside bottom vent but it's cramped. Thanks

Sounds like you may need a new axle.

Refrigerators are usually held in place from the front edge ,inside the trailer, and the bottom. I don't think I would depend on the fiberglass as a support.
I hear that one solution for the collapsed axle issue might be to run your tires at 20 PSI, but I certainly wouldn't recommend that solution.
