Slide-out wiper seal corner fitment technique

I need to replace the double-bulb wiper seal on my bedroom slide-out. The rotten seal that I removed was uncut, and jammed as tightly into the corners as possible, with the gap in the corner filled with some type (butyl?) adhesive. This left a fold in the wiper flap that didn't lay flat at the corners. I have seen photos of them with the flaps cut at the ends so that they overlap at the corner.

When I search for information on IRV2 and elsewhere, all I find are instructions to take it to a shop and have it fixed. I strongly suspect that the reason for that is the difficulty working beneath slide-out toppers. My toppers are removed (probably permanently) so I don't have that problem. Can anyone describe (or link to a source) how and why to fit the corners one way or the other?

Pick a dry day and have the slideout half way out to remove and replace the seal. When it comes to the corners overlap the top seal over the vertical seals like a shingle on a roof. You can use a poly butyl to glue the seals together. Good luck and keep us posted.
