First part comment on existing issues.
Presumably you have setup both ADSL routers to pass port 500/4500 to the RV042.

The VPN policies should not reference anything dealing with the RV042's WAN IP
192.168.2.x nor 192.168.3.x.
As far as each router is concerned it knows the external IP of the ADSL which is the source of the request and the LAN behind the RV042.
The local security ID on each RV042 should reflect the External IP.
Other than that the VPN policy seems to be right.



To simplify things here is what you should consider doing. There is no point to have two NAT routers one directly after the other
1) record the configurations of the ADSL routers
2) Change the mode of operations of the ADSL routers from bridge routerd to bridged mode.
3) reconfigure the RV042 with the settings you recorded in the first part.

At this point, you will have one side with the old configuration and one side with the RV042 having the WAN address as the original public IP.
See whether this works out better.
You can then repeat steps 1 through 3 for the second RV042.

The above steps take into account that you changed the Local security Gateway referenced in the first portion of the response to reflect the external IP such that the changes to the RV042 and the ADSL router will not require alterations of the VPN policy.

Also you should use 3des rather than des for the encryption of phase1 and phase2.
More secure encryption.
