Exit door grab handle

I own a 2016 FR3 32 DS. As you exit the unit, the black door handle mounted on the wall has no strength. Seems it is only attached to the black plastic molding around the door. Appears to be a poor design flaw. Any suggestions?

I have a different RV, but on the interior, my exit handle is screwed through the door trim, then MDF (as a space filler, to allow it to tighten without distorting the door trim), to the wall.

My suggestion, if you are handy, is to remove the handle and trim, to see how your is setup. While you have the trim off, you can add some weather seal to the space between the door frame and the wall, and sturdy up the handle, if needed.
