Gasser hood cover not tight

We have found the source of our rattle (hopefully). We have a Thor and the engine cover rattles because it's not a tight fit. Any suggestions on how to have snug fit?

Vehicle hood , should have three adjustment points.
Two with rubber bumpers in the corners opposite the hinges and one on the striker pin that the latch attaches to.
If pushing the hood tight, causes it to miss-align with it's opening, then you adjust the ones with the rubber bumpers, longer, to hold the hood in alignment with it's opening.
If pushing the hood tight, brings it into alignment with it's opening, then you need to move the striker pin.
CAUTION: Make very small adjustments , over tightening the adjustments can make it very difficult to pull the release cable, even damaging the cable or latch.

If the threaded stud with nuts in post four; lines up, and goes into the black opening in post five. Then the nuts are your adjustment. Loosen the nut on the inside ( closest to the hood) then tighten the exposed nut the same amount, I'd say 1/6 of a turn at a time then test the hood for tight.
NOTE: Mark the nuts with a marker for the starting location, so you can return to that point if you don't make any headway, if there is a tang sticking out one direction ; make sure you maintain the same direction with that part.

We made the adjustments today, a lot better. Once we hit the road we will find out if we need to do a bit more. Thanks everyone for the help.
