Norcold 10DC door tabs breaking off

Has anyone else had the little tabs break off on the doors that hold the trays onto the door?
The previous owner put this fridge in, I don't think he took the trailer into places like we do. On our second trip with it we had the tray on the 2nd position to fit bottled water and it broke off after about 60 kms of logging road.
The third trip we had the tray in the top position with 6 cans of pop/beer in it and it broke again this time on 15 kms of gravel.
Pretty frustrating these things are built to hold what fits into them. I wasn't driving fast, no more than 30 or 40 KPH.
If you had this problem what did you do about it?
(I had  Ssimilar problem with the Norcold 2 way fridge in our old trailer but in that case it was the tabs for the bottom tray.  I think I used Gorilla glue that time, never fell off again but was unable to remove the tray for cleaning after that)

I had one tab break off on my Norcold about 10 years ago. I just moved the tray up one slot and haven't had any further breaks. I do remember a post years ago where somebody used a piece of metal, I think it was a bent wire coat hanger to repair one of their broken tabs. I'm not claiming to have read and remembered anywhere near all of the posts from the past. But other than that one post I don't remember anybody else talking about it.

Well I've had 3 broken tabs on 2 Norcold fridges, never had the problem with any of our old Dometic fridges.
Used the online form at Norcold,  no reply so far a week later.
