Self-Latching Soft Close Baggage Door Locks

Our 2016 Newmar King Aire baggage doors are difficult to impossible to close. What could be wrong? Almost had to duck tape a couple before hitting the road.

Sounds like a door alignment problem.. doors maybe sagging a little. Ave they always been hard to close?

I spent an entire afternoon when I first bought my coach and went bay by bay adjusting the doors by moving the clips up/down/in/out.

Takes some time, but now every door works smoothly.

EDIT: Just realized the title... maybe these are different than normal bay doors that have a metal hoop "catch"? That's the things that I was adjusting.
