Question about reefer hatches


Over on the reefer madness list there is a discussion on the normal position
of reefer hatches. I was under the impression that reefer ice hatches were
normally closed whether the car was loaded or empty unless it was specifically
carrying a load that needed ventilation only, when the hatches were opened. I
thought I read this on this list, but might be mistaken. Can anyone confirm
the typical or normal practice?
