Replacing Window Gasket

The rear window channel in my 27' front bedroom is collecting water when ever it rains. Once the channel fills the water seeps through the window latch assembly and runs down the wall and under the linoleum. I believe the problem is a bad gasket in one of the corners. I noticed the gasket is cut at a 45 degree angle and in all the corners but the problem corner the gasket pieces are "glued" together where they have been cut. I have not been able to get an answer about what to use to fasten the gasket pieces to each other. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In addition, any suggestions about what the correct window latch tension is would also be greatly appreciated.

In my old trailer I used SitkaFlex221 to fill the gap caused by shrinkage. Yours is much newer you may be able to ask an automotive window repair shop near you for help in a prettier repair. As for the window tension use just enough to keep water out your seals will be grateful with less stress on them :-)
