If you are after parts from a "broken Traiblaza", it is quite likely that those "parts" are broken too.
What is wrong with yours? What is happening with it?
Prom my experience they are pretty well bullet proof (ok, a .44mag. might alter its operational behaviour!)
More info. needed, eh.

It sounds like the control unit/inverter. Have you checked the fuses? If so & they haven't blown, you may be able to get it checked out through an electronic repair outlet who deals in that type of equipment. Usually you shouldn't have problems with the compressor as they are Danfoss & a very reliable unit. Cheers.

The only thing that brakes in a Trailblaza is motor and electronic controller so you will be luck to get a secondhand one ,I just gota new 70 litre one this week .Sold 15 year old one in Trading Post for $700.00

Jonboy, From what you are saying, it is not getting (or thinks that it is not) enough power. Are we talking about it being on 12 volt or through a 240 volt inverter?
Have you told Norcoast Refrigeration of the problem. Have they looked at it?
I would guess that it is the electronic controller and not the compressor.
Could you expand on what you are doing and have you checked the voltage under load.
The more info you provide the better someone will be able to assist.

I have tryed it on 12 volt and 240 volts
Battery was fully charged
Norcoast have looked and say it needs a full rebuilt as they cant get parts for this model now,And its easyer for them to put new motor and eletonic than find a problem with this one

Jonboy, I guess that reduces your options. If it was me, I would buy a new one for the extra $300 when funds permit. It will be much easier to sell a 2008 model than a 1998 reconditioned model. As you would know the cabinets are bullet proof so anyone with a broken Trailblaza the issue will be the motor rather than the cabinet.

Best of luck......
