    Do you have any warranty left on your vehicle?

    Yes, it's a 2018 RAM 1500 Limited with 13k miles on it. Plenty of warranty left. :) I looked into the fuse issue and it turns out F5 - the big 40 AMP fuse, was blown. I stopped by the local Auto Zone to pick one up and replaced it right in the parking lot. The front air suspension came right up after doing so. Most likely just a temporary fix though, so I will keep my appt for next week just in case.

    I wish mine was that simple, Can you keep us in the loop as to what the dealer tells you? I'm expecting a call on my truck soon. 10 days today since they ordered a reservoir, it was on back order. Seems suspicious when a part that's needed is back ordered. Must be lots needed through out USA and Canada.

    Will definitely keep you all in the loop. Was even colder here overnight so still receiving the “immediate attention” alert for the air suspension as of this morning but I’m not on the bump stops yet so hopefully I can last until the middle of next week.

    I've had two straight days in the teens and lower 20s and so far the suspension has held fine.

    Sounds like you have a good truck and are good to go. There are many more trouble free Air suspension trucks out there. We just don't hear about them.
