Angry fridge door

I have a 305 vret that has a refridgerator door panel problem. The panel is very heavy and the cheap plastic trim that holds it in place is not strong enough to support it. As soon as you open door it slides down hard on the floor. I took it to the dealer for warranty work and talked to the service manager about it. He told me that they should use double sided tape to help secure panel in place. Well guess what? Just got back from our road trip and open up fridge to get a cold one and bam, panel fell to floor. Upon inspection of panel I found no double sided tape, or I should say there's no way way you can put tape on a sliding door. has anyone else had an issue with thier door panel falling to the floor and any suggestions on a PERMANENT fix.

Velcro the border. We Velcro'd a full length mirror to the shower door on our 08 Flagstaff tt and it held for 5 yrs. Did the same on our new 5er and it is still hanging.

When I tried to replace the wood panel the service department couldn't remove it due to all the glue that was used to hold it in place. I didn't want to chance damaging the insulation so I have learned to live with a dime size hole in the fridge panel. However, I am surprised that so many members have commented upon their panels falling out of place.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
