What is the best way to align the L shaped frame mount latch with the door catch ?

First you need to make sure the coach is on level ground then my experience is trial & error slow adjustments to include occassionally slightly bending the L bracket. Not sure that's how it should be done but it's worked for me !

First make sure the hinge screws are tight. I found two doors with lose hinges that were causing latching problems. The "L" bracket was just fine.

I found on mine, where the rivet that keeps the door from sliding in the hinge track was missing. My rear most door started to run and the 2 others in that section of track would not latch. I opened the forward most and it had about 1/2" travel sliding in the hinge, which fixed the latching. I moved the others up, so they latch and the rear door no longer rubs. I replaced the missing rivet with the next size bigger to keep everything in place.
