Norcold Seals or Generic Foam Tape?

So it seems completely redonkulous to hack apart my Norcold Fridge & Freezer doors to replace the gasket door seals as indicated in these posts

https://www.irv2.com/forums/f54/norc...em-377497.html

Or buy new for $80
https://www.irv2.com/forums/f54/sour...ls-412632.html

So why not simply stick Foam Insulation Tape over the existing gasket? I tried last night on one side with 1/2" x 1/8 - doubling up helped but still not snug so planning to use the 3/8 thick stuff.
Amazon 1" x 3/8 Foam $14

Anyone try this? Does it work or fail miserably?

My concern is that the foam tape would eventually take a 'set', which would render it less effective in sealing door. how long? Don't know.

I've had foam weatherstripping around a few stick house doors for a couple years. If it lasts that long for the Norcold I'll be a happy camper.

Edit: add the pun
