Default Need help lots of issues during cross country trip

Driving form El Paso TX to Watertown NY my 99' 1500 lost overdrive the tach and stopped charging all at once while i was driving, and seems like its stuck in 3rd gear. after i stopped it wouldn't start back up the power comes on and the fuel pump come on but wont engage the starter. i did put a new alternator on it and got it to start by jumping the starter to the battery, also had to use starter fluid or it just cranks and still no charging. Got her as far as Chicago running the truck i had on the trailer and using extension cords to charge mine with the rear truck all the while stuck in 3rd for the better part of 1500 miles. I'm not sure where to start or what to do
