To replace them on any RV refrigerator that I know of requires replacement of the refrigerator doors and that is expressive.
Dometic sells a door seal kit that I looked at when we experienced a similiar problem. But the near $200 cost for some seals put me off.
I went to Home Depot and found insulating strips (rubber, adhesive back) that approximated the thickness of these seals. Cut it to length and used that for several years till the coils sprang a leak (11 yrs old).
On the Dometic, there are magnetic strips behind the seal that cause the seal itself to be pushed to the reefers edges (they're metal) thus proving a good seal. I don't know a thing about Norcolds though.
An appliance parts store also had a universal seal kit (magnetic) that I looked at (sold by the foot) but the seal itself was too thick for my application.

In an interview,General Norman Schwarzkopf was asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harbored and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America. His answer was "classic" Schwarzkopf. The General said, "I believe that forgiving them is God's function. OUR job is to arrange the meeting."
