if there is a check engine light read the codes at a parts store for free. it will tell you whats wrong. your car is in limp mode to protect itself from more damage. could be the computer senced the transmission slip or a lot of things. u need to read codes to find out
Common Chrysler problem, your shift solenoids are going out. Id reccomend having a transmission shop replace those before you have to rebuild the transmission. Those can cost anywhere from $1200 to $2500 to rebuild.
You should diagnose the check engine light. You can have this done at a mechanic or alternatively you can rent a scanner from a parts store. What may feel like a slipping transmission can be a misfire.
Low fluid can cause slipping. (depends upon how low) Most manufacturers post "safe" tow speeds. These are generally ignored. (not good). I recommend towing with driveshafts removed and where driveshaft has a "slip yoke" you install a yoke from a scrapyard and wire it to the tailshaft so it stays in place (keeps oil in and dirt out) Although you can't just detach the tow-bar and drive, it eliminates any possibility of trans damage, since the transmission cannot turn. (most use oil from pump to keep gearsets cool...when towing, pump is not pumping and over time and distance it can damage trans internals.) Hope your problem is just low fluid and not a rebuild...keep in mind what I said though.
