Heater wont stay on the wall??

So I moved my heater the other day to put it closer to the filter, now the darn thing one stay stuck to the wall??!! Lol during the water change I just did I even dried the spot on the wall and the two suction cups and tried to stick it back on the wall again only for it to pop off hours later... So once a day I am sticking the heater back to the wall.

Any ideas on how to get it to stick (short of me pulling out the silicone and fixing it for good??!! Lol).

Nice tip man, I nearly dumped a perfectly good internal filter, old but good, because I could find replacement sucker cups to fit it. Good job i'm a hoarder!!!!
