I am assuming you are talking about an automatic transmission. It is probably the same transmission I have. It is absolutely normal and it is preferred to run in a lower gear with a higher RPM. Shifting back and forth, aka searching for the proper gear is much harder on the drive train. But down shifting a gear or two (maybe more) is absolutely normal. I was out west last summer going through mountain passes pulling some hard grades, for many miles. No issues, just a lot higher RPMs and louder sounds that I am use to.

Dodge recommends ATF +4. Check the owners manual for sure. Don't do a power flush…washes too much debris around. Just drop the pan and change both filters and add new fluid to refill.
