We just purchased a new travel trailer. We have taken it on small trips and really like it. No issues thusfar except one minor one!!!! Our previous RV had wire grates in the refrigerator that did not slip. Our new residential unit has glass shelves as we do in our home. They look good but when traveling the shelves come forward and then there is a gap at the back of the refrigerator and items fall through. We do keep anything liquid e.g. milk, juice, water, etc in a cooler until we arrive at our destination. Has anyone been able to correct this problem. I can't seem to find anything that would keep the shelves in place. Thank you.

I can think of three options.

Can you put larger items in the back like the milk carton that can't fall through? That would block and keep everything else from falling through as well.

Not free but try these to make a back wall on the shelves. Clamp them upside down on the back of the shelf and screw a piece of cheap 1/2 pine or even a cut off piece of clear plastic on the back. The idea is to put a back lip that runs across the shelf so even if it slides forward things can't slide off the back.
Amazon

A bit uglier, buy a sheet of insulating foam at Home Depot and cut to stand on end and fill the gap between the door and the shelf. Then put the foam sheet into the refrigerator and close the door when traveling.

Hot glue gun or a dab of caulk at the front of the glass on each side.

That's a good idea. A strip on each side under the glass where it bears on the support lip.

Nother thought, Idk how far forward they slide, but a piece of pipe insulation to slip over the front edge before traveling. Like a bump stop.

You beat me to it. I was going to suggest strips of a pool noodle across the front edge of any of the shelves that slide.

My suggestion was more for laying across the top of the glass as nothing slides on this stuff. Of course load biggest/tallest towards front of RV.

Might try the bars they sell to put in front of the spaces and put it right in front of the shelf edge.
One example:

I like 'Sclep's' idea of a dab of caulk or hot glue at the front corners to keep the shelves from moving. Or put a wedge or piece of shelf liner just at the front under side of the glass. Much cleaner than my original thought of spilling juice or cola at the edge. I've had to work to get my shelve out after at spill has dried.

You could use some thin one sided foam backed tape under the shelf edges.

Walmart has thin 8-1/2 x 11 foam sheets with a peal and stick adhesive backing in the arts and craft section next to sewing. The sheets come in colors. I cut a black piece up to use under various items on my desk to keep them from sliding around and scratching the surface. It is similar to the material on some stamped metal bookends. You could cut strips to put under the edges of the glass shelves.
