Ah, not familiar with YOUR coach, but pics might help us help you...

on mine both the striker and the door can be adjusted easily.

here's a pic of the latch that shows you can go in, out, left, right, with judicious use of a wrench on the exposed nuts...
and up and down by adjusting the hidden bolts/screws on the back of the bracket...

What part of the door you need adjusting. The latching part is done by using shims but if you are having problems closing the door to latch it all they need is lubed. I used a liutuman grease and used a old paint brush and lubed the works up. Just pull the handle open and lube it.

It's the latches, some of my doors when I close them one side will latch and the other I have to pull the handle to get it to latch.... It could be just a matter of using the grease like was suggested......

Mine have to be pushed to latch also, rubber seal is tight and I think that is a good thing. I don't mind lifting the handle a bit a pushing the doors shut knowing there is a good seal.

True and I agree 100% but sometimes mine do not latch at all and I have to really push/lift the handle.... And sometimes it is only one side

As already mentioned I spray white lithium grease into the slide bolt mechanism on each side of each door at least once a year.

That's exactly what was needed, I greased everything yesterday thinking it had never been done... No adjustment was needed...What a difference

Thanks...
