Screen door not latching

Relatively new unit, only had it a couple of months, what we first believed to be a "minor" issue is starting to aggravate. The screen door will not catch on the latch plate, there is just about 1/8 inch space and have tried adjusting level of the trailer with no success. Is there an easy fix for this?

I had a similar problem with our new 5er. The fix was to move the latch plate out giving the screen latch more room too engage. Needed to drill new holes for the latch plate screws to get enough adjustment. Also had to adjust the hook on the outside door so that the screen door latch would disengage when the outside door was closed. Both adjustments took less then 20 minutes.
