The correct fix, is to completely remove all of the padded material, clean off "ALL" of the old adhesive, apply new adhesive, and then apply new padded material.
You cannot apply any adhesive over the old, as it becomes no better than the old, and would quickly fail.
The cause of the failure was the water based adhesive that Airstream was forced to use.
Hundreds of other owners, had the same problem.
