Not sure if this will help you but on my MH there is a switch on my dash that I can use to bring up the idle.

Hope you find your answer

You may have to adjust the stops on your linkage at the fuel pump/governor.

I would check to be sure that there is not a bind in the cable and linkage first. A bind here would prevent the throttle from returning to idle position.
I hope this helps, and be sure to let us know the solution to your problem.
