Seal Maintenance Question

My TT is now almost 4 yrs old. No leaks but I have noticed some cracking in the sealant along the seam shown in pictures. It's the seam that runs along the vertical arc joining the side of the TT to the front.

Anyway, though there is some cracking the sealant is still extremely pliable.

Questions:

1) I purchased Dicor non-leveling lap sealant (black color). Is this appropriate for this application?
2) I began removing the existing sealant and then stopped to post these questions. It seems nearly impossible to remove all the existing sealant. It's extremely pliable. Should I even be trying to remove all of it or should I just scrape out the damaged looking portions and apply directly over all of the existing sealant. To be honest it's so pliable I could probably mash the existing stuff into a uniform looking seam.

Ps....pictures rotated when I posted them. Sorry!
