Norcold 4 door Refrigerator

I have a 2008 Pheaton that needs a new gaskit on the fridge doors. I took it to a local shop and they said "you can't replace just the gaskit on this Norcold you have to replace the doors." they want $1100 for new doors just to get a new gaskit. Am I dreaming or does this sound crazy???
Please help.

Did they mention that all Norcolds are on a recall because of fires from split cooling coils.

I found this comment interesting. I had the seals replaced under Norcold's extended warranty by a service center I use. I thought that he'd just replace the seals, but he replied basically the same as the OP's service provider did, "complete doors, seals not available." Norcold sent new doors freight paid and paid the labor. When I checked the link given above I see no breakout for the seals. In case my seals fail again is there a part number for the gaskets that I'm missing?
