Main door Latch opens while traveling

I have an Itasca Ellispe 2012 which the main door latch will open at any given time going down the highway. You here a bang and the door is slightly open seeming like the deadbolt is only holding it. It can happen on a smooth straight road and times hours after traveling. Before leaving I pull on the door and nothing it stays closed. We slam the door making sure its closed. I've adjusted the locking latch but still have the problem. Has anyone had an issue as such and what was the problem. Any help you could offer would be deeply appreciated, thank you.

I had a Fleetwood that did that, had to use the dead bolt to keep it closed.

I have a 1998 Fleetwood American Tradition that also does that. Now we get a lot of wind noise because the door will not stay latched. My guess is body twist is causing this problem. I am not sure on how to solve this problem
