Rubber Gaskets On Slide Outs

Awhile back in 2016 while traveling, had a gasket on my LR slide out separate at top corner where top overlaps the side gasket and tear, I bought some garage door gasket material as it is similar type rubber material and tried every kind of glue made for rubber over weeks of travel and was unsuccessful in creating any kind of bond that would hold for any length of time.
Tiara RV in Elkwood Ind tried to repair trying to do me a favor and put a new piece of rubber on and glued but it only worked for a couple of days. Long story short, finally got to Florida, went to Alliance coach in Wildwood Fl, and they replaced entire gasket and all is well. Mechanic told me they use Super glue to adhere the rubber, I had tried a couple of those with no good results.
Well here I am parked in Titusville Fl, and checking and treating my slide gaskets, notice my other LR slide separating at corner where top gasket is bonded to side gasket. I start to panic not again, then I remember, while at Tampa Rv show in 2015, I purchased a product called Max 1, that states "the only glue you will ever need".
I keep it in my fridge as it extends life of product, so I got it out cut two squares of rubber applied some of the glue bonded them together, and within seconds, was unable to pull them apart, I climbed up to my slide gasket and applied a small amount of glue to the separated gasket, I then reinforced with a small piece of rubber overlay, and the result was fantastic this was two months ago and still bonded tight.
This product is called MAX 1 it bonds anything, I've even used it to fix my wife's favorite paring knife when the blade came out of the plastic handle.
The web site is Max 1 Instant Glue | The Only Glue You'll Ever Need, it is a German made product with many uses.
My problem is I just have to remember I have it and use it, great product.
Hope this helps someone with similar problem or even something else that needs bonding.
