Bunk End Seals need to be glued

We just took delivery of our 2016 233S. I noticed that the bunk end seals had come loose in two locations. This is mostly where the seals intersect. Just a small section that appear to need to be re-glued.

What would you recommend I do to glue the seals back down. Any special type of glue, tape, or rubber cement to use?

I see Amazon has this weatherstrip adhesive ...
Amazon.com: 3M 08008 Black Super Weatherstrip Adhesive Tube - 5 oz.: Automotive

I would rather do this myself - correctly, than take it back to the dealer that is 80 miles away.

Thanks for the input!

Coming from the auto repair industry the 3m weather strip adhesive worked well, a couple of things to watch while working with it,
1- clean BOTH surfaces to be glued with alcohol
2- it dries really fast!
3- It is slimy and gets everywhere and because it dries fast don't let that intimidate you, just make a plan, follow the directions and try to work quickly, once it takes, it usually holds well.
good luck! you can do it!
I am gonna check my seals tonight and see if they are loose.
