Main Door Installation

So because the side panel between the door threshold and the Kwikee stairs was beat all to heck... I decided to rebuild a new panel (and a few others too)

That project is proceeding smoothly except for when I reinstalled the door.
The latches are NOT aligning. It's only off by about 3/16" but that is enough to be a PITA. It closes but it has to be slammed to do so.

Question: is there some special procedure I should have done or some other bit of advice that someone has learned the hard way?

I had to adjust my latch post once and found that it appears to be on some kind of 'etcentric'. Loosening the latch post/bolt I could rotate same and retighten.

Hope this makes sense as I describe it?
