Service conduit gasket loose

The gasket where the service conduit meets the roof had popped out on one side again. It seems to happen with the change of seasons.
is there any particular outdoor adhesive I could use that would keep it in place?

I would just use silicone or some roofing adhesive. A picture might be handy showing what you have.

Is this the correct orientation of your picture?

That must be right, Ray, because the trees are now vertical.

I don't see a service conduit.

The metal part is the conduit on roof. Gutter blocks the view on the overhang where it comes down.
The black is the gasket.

Do you mean the ruber boot of the roof jack?

Now I see the problem. A plumbing flashing was used instead of a conduit flashing. Should have been a RF-2 flashing. I believe the best way to fix it now would be with another plumbing part, an Oatey rain collar, but that will require disconnecting everything at the top of the mast and sliding the collar over everything and down the mast to the flashing. What's that black cable ty-wrapped to the mast. I'd get rid of that entirely.

That's the phone line, which we don't actually need anymore but it's left in case.
I can't disconnect everything without an electrician so will have to go with the adhesive for now...
Push it into place and then silicone over the top?

I can't tell but if that phone cable is going through the gasket remove it. I suspect that might be a cause of the gasket moving up.

The phone cable doesn't go thru the gasket.

That looks like quite a long piece of unsupported mast.
What's the distance between the mast and the pole ?
