I don't know if you fix your problem or not, but here it goes. I had the same problem with my Monaco door.
You need to remove the white panel on the inside side of the door. It's really easy. You need to remove the black metal trim along the edges of the door. You will have to grind the 2 rivets heads at the top and remove the screws.. You then need to remove all the screws around the window on the inside. Then remove the screws that hold the handles and don't forget the door lock.
You should then be able to slide out the white panel. Once the panel is removed you will be able to see the adjustable links. There is two sets. One for the upper latch and one for the lower.
Play with them until you're satisfied with the operation.
Believe me it will make a difference. Before I needed my two hands to open the door because I had to push the door and pull the handle at the same time. Now I only need two fingers of one hand. What a change!
Hope this helps.
