What could cause a transmission to stay in 1st gear?

Ford F53 Chassis - Triton V10
After towing our trailer, up the hills from San Diego to Temecula (2 hour drive) I ran into an issue of the transmission staying in first gear.
I wasn't pulling the trailer.
The only way I can describe it is that either it popped back into neutral, or it wouldn't come out of first gear. like a slipping clutch or similar I guess.
I pulled over, made a few calls, found a place to get her in and drove there with no issue.
AAMCO did an inspection and diagnostic on the tranny
Oil was clean.
She has been driving strong ever since.
