Securing Grab Handle

Anyone have luck securing the grab handle? Mine has two screws that go through sheet metal. I tried hallow wall anchors that appeared to require zero debth. Additionally, I Crazy Glued then anchors as well as the screws but now its looser than when I started.

Thanks for any advice you may have.

Well......first, what camper do you have? What grab handle are you talking about? Front door? Interior? Bathroom?
Way too many variables for a helpful answer.

Can you get behind the surface to add additional support? On some exterior walls it may be possible to remove a panel inside and reinforce the mounting area. Interior grab handles are easier because you cut 2" holes behind the mounting surface and add 1/4" plywood then molly or toggle bolts to secure.
