On a previous Fiver, I used Duct Tape to make sure it stayed closed while driving.

johnruff, are you from West Virginia too.
I had a friend from WV whose gas cap was missing on his Datsun station wagon, until he found a roll of duct tape.....he must have used that stuff for a year or more. ��

With he slam latches you have on your coach you need to look at the latch and maybe even have it moved. My coach has similar latches but mine do not come open while in transit.
Also contact you dealer or FR direct and go over the issue maybe with the newer type latch they may have a fix for you or them to do, this is a safety issue so it needs to be fixed.
Good luck and Happy camping
