Tropi-cal entrance door safety catch

The safety catch build into the entrance door of my 2005 Tropi-cal LX is not catching, allowing the wind to blow the door shut with great force. Any ideas how to adjust/replace the mechanism?

Is that a "bus" style door like on diesel pushers? I had to replace mine, there was a label of the manufacturer that I had to order from. If it's a middle door that has a bracket on the body and on the door, you can get that at any RV store or online.
Hope that helps

Good idea, checking the door edge for manufacturer--never got past the "how to" note. I'll go there now. Thanks.

I just replaced mine on 2007 Tropical LX. Contacted the door manufacturer and bought one. One screw rusted out but drilled a new one, caulked the screws and it works fine.
