We have an 06 Allure and the entry door doesn't always latch all the way (2nd detent).

When you're outside you can easily see this and close the door (harder). But from inside the only clue is that you can't close the deadbolt without pulling on the door handle. It's quite hard to get it to the 2nd detent from inside.

Any ideas/advice as to what to look for or what to adjust?

I would first make sure the coach is level and not in a stress parked condition. Check to be sure all hinge side screws are tight and door is hanging plumb and square to frame. Make adjustment to the striker as need to allow door to close more easily. Once you have it the way you want it, you will need to est drive it to be sure it is tight enough not to allow any wind noise or rattling. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Everything is level with no stress. We're on a concrete pad and have air-only levelling. Door appears square & plumb and hinges side screws are tight.

Couldn't see where to adjust the striker but I'll take a closer look today.
