Screen Door Latch on New Sport 16'

The screen door on our 2015 Sport 16 does not stay consistently latched. The plastic end on the latch plunger does not fully line up and engage with the aluminum catch on the door frame. I cannot see a way to adjust either the plunger or catch, which is rivited to the frame. We have been careful not to overtighten the stabilizer jacks as we know this can cause door problems. We are under warranty but this is the only problem we have had and hate to make a special trip to the dealer for this issue. Thoughts? Thanks!

I have the same problem with a new 2017 International Serenity. Putting a tiny bit more tension on the stabilizer jacks brought the screen door closer, but it's about 1/4" away yet.
