Dometic RM2662 door latch

The door latches on my RM2662 do not hold the doors closed on the road and if not tied the contents wind up on the floor. Is there a ready made solution? If not, I have been thinking of fabricating a positive latch using a hinge on the opposite side, between freezer and refrigerator door, with a removeable pin and plate. We used to do this when I was building yachts, and it should work here, using the ready made hinge mounting points that are currently capped. Anyone else have the same problem, know of an easy solution?

I have the same problem, but I have gone with a temporary fix. I use a aluminum tie that holds chain link fences to posts. It is sturdy but very pliable. I just wedge the aluminum tie between the latch and the door when traveling on the road and the doors don't open.
