The spring inside is broken like mine was. Drill out the pop rivets and take your broken spring to a hardware store for a replacement. Most hardware stores will have an assortment of springs. Remember that the black bolt still needs room to move, so resist the temptation to buy one that is so long that it will coil bind with insufficient travel. You're probably wondering how I know this.
Put everything back on with 4 new pop rivets and you are done. Easy!
Now you will have to get used to the door latching open every time it hits the latch instead of you having to manually latch the door. Well worth it, though.
Sorry, no advice on the cabinet latches. Check the usual suspects, Inland RV, Out-of-Doors Mart, Vintage Trailer Supply, etc...
