1982 300d turbo transmission

Hello All,
I could use some help with a problem I am having with my baby's transmission.
I have a 1982 300d turbo, She currently has 188k mi. and runs great.
I had the transmission serviced, filter, fluid, and new modulator not to long ago.
All of a sudden, it is slipping in first gear, catches, then shifts fine thru the rest of the gears. Any suggestions?
Also, does anyone know of a reputable transmission shop in the Pa area? Do you think a used trans is a bad idea?

I have a similiar problem shifting from 2nd to 3rd. It shifts normally when I am pulling a trailer, two or more passengers or under hard acceleration. I suspect a vacuum leak.
