I have an electrical outlet mounted outside the back door of my house
and its mounted in a horizontal position. The buyer wants it fastened
to the structure in a more secure manner but I see no way of doing
this without tearing some of the siding off and installing a brace of
some sort. My question is: is the way its mounted to code? ie. just
fastened to the siding and wallboard?

It should not be loose. The orientation of the outlet does not matter.
Turn off the circuit before messing with it. Buy a new cover and
install it to make the buyer happy. The GE Silicone is good stuff.
