Nope! Not yet anyways. Have you done anything to the truck? Like aftermarket or adjustable lift links? Have you overloaded the truck?

There have been a few cases of the Ram air suspension system failing early on due to a sensor failure or the control module itself. Electronics, if they're going to fail, fail more often in the first weeks of use, or tend to last years before failure. Regardless, all those parts are covered under the warranty. It's just going to be an annoyance for you.

Best to just get extended warranty with a pickup like the Rebel. If the suspension system fails outside of the factory warranty, it's going to cost an arm and a leg to fix.

Or, if it fails after warranty, that would be the perfect time to throw in a standard lift kit! Probably would cost less.

Agreed. Air Suspension replacement kits/parts are expansive. A rookie in my tire shop at work blew one on a Ram and it was almost a 2k job to replace the rear bags.

Finally, it was a loose connection on a sensor, took 5 minutes to fix and I do have the extended warranty !
