If the trailer was parked, and not very level, a vapor lock within the reefer can happen.
The fix that you can try is to leave the reefer off for a couple of days, and then tow it about 10 miles or so, with a number of turns.
Then, when the trailer is parked, make sure that it's level and the fire up the reefer again, and see what happens.
The other thing, 'that must be done" over time, is to have the reefer burner orifice cleaned, so that the burner can get hot enough. The orifice should be cleaned every 2 to 3 years to keep the LPG heating at maximum.
After that PM, if the reefer still does not cool, then a replacement is in order.
If so, list the make and model, and I will give you a list of what reefers will fit in the same space.
