Any recommendation for service in Hot Springs AR

When we tried to leave Kirby Landing Campground, the MH cranked up and motor ran perfectly but it would just barely move even with accelerator fully pressed. Made it the dump station and then got it moved out of the way but it's still there. We are going to have it towed to Hot Springs but have no idea about a reputable service provider. We have had one bad experience and don''t want another. Can anyone provide information?

Arkansas Automotive and Truck didn't work on diesels and Ward's didn't want to work on a MH but would if we were in an absolute bind. He gave us a contact number for a diesel mechanic in Kirby who agreed to go look at it in the morning. Hopefully he can get it back on the road and we won't have to have it towed anywhere.

He did not. It was a ERU? module? and he didn't have equipment to repair. We are currently waiting for approval from Progressive to tow to Cummins in North Little Rock. We are supposed to leave on the 10th to take grandkids to Mt. Rushmore. Starting to get stressed.

I'm really nervous about having it towed out of that campground. Glad I won't be there to see it.

Did anyone check to see if the Parking Brake failed in the engaged position? Is the P-B lamp on the dash dark?
