Replacing Bunk Seals

So my thought was right. Our front bed seal leaked during the first drive in rain coming home from the Florida Keys in multiple storms.
Forest River sent me new seals to replace all beds. My thought is can I use 1 long seal and start at the corner bottom go up around the top and down to the other corner. This would make it much harder for water to work its way in.
Currently FR is using 3 strips (top and 2 sides). Problem is water works its way in between the top and sides seals. On cars they bend and curve the rubber seals so I would think it would work.
Hoping to replace this weekend.

You may have issues with the width wanting to buckle (pop up) away from the slide. You may have to either cut a 45 degree miter at each end, possibly bond the two ends with rtv sealant. That would be better than the pic shown.

Wow! So much for quality control.
I would try the mitering of the corners with sealant.
