Tank Heating Pads Coming Loose

I crawled under my new Sunseeker MBS 2400R last night and was surprised to see that both of the tank heating pads were coming "unglued" from the bottom of the black and grey tanks. They are coming loose on the leading edge, meaning as I go down the road they are likely to just get more loose until they fly off. Does anyone know the proper adhesive to reattach these? I'm not inclined to drive a hour back to the dealer for something like this, which should have been caught before delivery. Pics attached.

I would look for a silicone adhesive that had some thermal conductivity. Being that it's on a plastic tank that may not be that important.

Clean and spray both surfaces with automotive trim adhesive.

DO NOT USE TAPE
You will want to use a high heat automotive silicone, ultra blue, black or red. clean thoroughly, apply evenly, push out air bubbles with a plastic scraper. Air pockets can cause fire, so, very important. If you use tape you could burn your unit to the ground.
