lower slide panels - normal construction?

Hi - I am new to owning a TT and just picked up the 2012 314BDS.

I noticed on the slide side the lower panels are somewhat flimsey. Looking at the door side there are brackets that hold the panel to the frame. While I understand they would not put adjustable brackets on the slide itself, why are there not brackets that attach the panel to the steel above it (like a J bracket)?

My dealer said that is normal and it has to do with not messing with the gears on the slide.

Should I beef it up some how or is that normal?

Any other "flimsey" construction norms I should know of?

The 314 has been around for a while. I am sure if it was a problem it would of been addressed. Their are plenty of 314 owners on this forum so they will chime in soon.

I don't think it is a problem.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.
