Are both the latch and deadbolt still locked after the door popped open? If so, I'd be inclined to think something is flexing an inordinate amount. Sounds goofy, but check that both the door and the door opening feel good and solid. Is there tension when closed because the door is slightly bowed, or because of too much weather stripping? Good luck. After 35+ years of camping, it still amazes me to discover where RV manufacturers cut corners and shave ounces at the expense of dependability and durability.
