Yo....

Real simple. AC stopped blowing, but outside air still came in at HWY speeds cold. Change the AC dial from min to max, nothing,,,,,

All of a sudden, after hitting a bump, the darn thing started blowing. Odd....

It has gone out/back on a few times since then. Checked for a fuse earliler, and after taking a few of them out to check, it came back on and has been on since. Any ideas what might be loose?

"Any ideas what might be loose?"
 
Fuses / earth / power wires / air temp control / relay switch, it could be any of these but an intermittant fault is the most difficult to locate even for pros.

Until it fails again you will probably not find the fault, but make sure the AC drive belt is tight (not slipping on its pulleys) and in good condition.
Also look for loose / bad wiring connecyed to the AC circuit.
And hope it just keeps working.

By stopped blowing...do you mean just the fan or temp. control as well?
Check and replace fuses that do no look perfect, look for loose wire connections to the AC fan unit.

"And by the way, I have no car repair experience what so ever.....  :-) "

I suggest a reliable garage or some friend with experience.

Check for a melted plug on the blower resistor.

Was a common problem on earlier years, not sure if it applies to yours.

The blower resistor is behind or below the glovebox on the passenger side.

Also a blower motor could be bad.  My cousin's 96 Chevy did that, after 230,000 miles and 14 years.

This is why dodge is on the verge of being bye bye.  I'd trade it for a Chevy or Ford as fast as I could.

It may have a sensor that turns the compressor off if the refrigerant is low.
