Question about 2008 Chrysler Town & Country
It might be that the calipers are dragging, but lets try something first, jack up the back of the van and put some kind of support under it ( safety first ) and wile turning the rear wheels by hand have some one apply the brakes the wheel should stop immediately and then wile keeping presser on the wheel in the direction you were turning them release the brake pedal the wheel should release instantly (also the wheel should spin free if not it could be as you suggested that the sliders are stuck) if the wheel does not release instantly open the bleeder on the caliper if the wheel still does not release then you need to replace the caliper. if the wheel does release with the bleeder open then it is either the rubber brake hose that is going from the body to the rear caliper or the master cylinder.....good luck and i hope you get to enjoy the rest of your trip

Removal & Installation
NOTE Using a brake pedal holding tool, depress the brake pedal past its first inch of travel and hold it in this position. This will isolate the master cylinder from the hydraulic brake system and will not allow brake fluid to drain out of the reservoir while the brake lines are open.
