Default Air bags

So supposedly the air bags on the newer trucks some of us have are supposed to be...serviced? checked? maintained? every few years (can't remember the number offhand)...

...what does this entail? Do people actually do this? Has anybody heard of this being done?

Just wondering...

Supposedly the same is true of the 80 series...First check is at 10 yrs IIRC and then every so many years after that. Well 10 years came and went for the LX and I've still done nothing
