Privacy door latch problem

The privacy door between the bedroom and the rest of the coach will not stay latched while driving. It comes unlatched and then moves around.
Winnebago replaced the latches and the door and it is slightly better but still not right. Anyone have any idea how I can make the latches tighter so they don't slide out and let the door move around?

Pictures of one of the latches (there are two, one on each side) and the door are attached
Thanks

I take it there bi-fold doors, and when the side to side movement of the unsecured part is swinging back and forth enough to allow the lock to come out correct.

Is it bi-fold or a pocket door? If a pocket door, simply drill or small hole up toward the top and insert a pin through the panel, the door and then into the opposite side of the pocket panel. Ours came with this in place and it never slides out. (We seldom use it either)

I did this.

Near the top of the door I put a small eye screw in the molding on both sides of the door. I attached about a 12 inch (1/8 inch) nylon cord. When traveling we tie the cord across the door.

Everything we did to try to get the regular installed latches was to no avail.

Would you be so kind as to take a picture of what you did to solve the problem?
Thanks

Just go in to the advanced mode and you can see the paper clip next to the smiley press it and it will let you upload the pics when you go to add it press the paper clip again and you will see the picture hit insert and it will place it on the post if you want to move it while still posting just highlight, cut and paste it

The fix is very simple. Hopefully the pictures are here. I loaded them from my iPhone connected to my computer. We will see what happens.
