Boler Fridge Door Hinge Pin

We bought a 13' 1973 Boler this year. I have many problems but by digging in the forums I've found most of the answers I seek ... thanks. However, one issue that I'm still trying to address is the Fridge Door.

It would appear that our Boler has the original 3-way Fridge with all it's 1970s beauty. Amazingly it seems to work fine (at least on propane and 110V Power); haven't tried 12V because the previous owner or one of them yanked out all the 12v wiring (my current project is addressing that). Anyway, I don't want to replace the fridge as despite being hideous it works and new 3-way fridges are not cheap. The problem is the door hinge pin on the top is missing. I got through the summer camping just by shoving a screw in there to keep it on but on bouncy roads it would bounce out and the door would fall off.

I noticed I can buy Dometic door pins. Does anyone know if they would work on the original Boler Fridge (I have no idea what make it is maybe it is Dometic??)

I used an aluminum gutter spike (think it was about 7 inches long) on our boler fridge to hold the door closed since the travel latch was missing. Our fridge was not a dometic, think it was a tedco. That spike never bounced out on us, even on Michigan 's horrible roads.

Well I wouldn't have thought of using a gutter spike . Thanks for the tip Lisa. I'm going to do some googling on Tedco Fridge hinges.
