    Had the air line on the drivers side air bag pop out. Figured it was a air bag with a hole in it. But turned out the air line slipped out of the fitting. Anyone know if the system uses air? Or like some of the others and charged with nitrogen?
    Line is back in and system is working. But not sure its deep enough in the fitting. Line did not look like it was in all the way from the factory. Truck only has 2700 miles on it.
    So wondering I need to throw away the time to see a dealer now? Or just run it and hope for the best?

    It is nitrogen from factory. I’m fairly certain you can run regular air though like tires. Air bags are essentially tires in their construction.

    Here's what I was told today. The shop will have fill it back with Nitrogen. As the sorry air pump installed on it. Will not build up enough volume of air. But its good when you have the 175lbs of Nitrogen in there to start out with. So waiting to hear back on them getting it into the shop. But was told to drive it like it was mine until then.
