Outside TV Compartment Door Welds

Has anyone else experienced issues with the aluminum welds breaking on their external TV doors? I have a 2009 Fleetwood Discovery 40X.Click image for larger version

TLI too little information. We do not have and outside TV so no experience, but I spent most of my working career doing among other things, weld inspection. Everything from the space shuttle to carnival rides.
A good weld should be stronger than the surrounding metal, therefore if the weld itself failed then it was poor welding technique.
Your picture I am assuming is of the hinge it was attached to and there is no weld present.
