It's a pretty common problem and not expensive parts wise.
If you baby it and shift into 5th straight on it can be avoided until repaired.
Call the guys here Dodge NV4500 and they will explain it better than I can.

My grandfather had the same kind of deal if you sift it straight in and out it will not hang if it is the shift fork. I wouldnt think a syncro would cause it to hang in gear but not grind going in hope that helps

possibly could be the same problem as mine. Theres these little flat clips with springs behind it, that hold the slider in position on the gear. (hard to explain) and one of my flat peices broke, got wedged in between the slider and the gear, holding the slider and forcing it to stay on the 5th gear syncro.
