i think someone has vac. lines wrong The problem is the engine loses vacuum when you accelerate. Vacuum is what operates the doors that control air flow through your ducts. I had the same problem with my 1998 Ram when it was new. They ended up putting what amounted to a one way valve in the vacuum line. I have owned four of this body series Ram trucks and they all have done the same thing brand new. Its not a big deal, but the previous answer is the best and easiest remedy that can be done. Be careful if taking it somewhere to have it installed for you, it takes a mechanic who doesn't know what they are doing only a half an hour.

Several possibilities, (I am assuming there is air actually blowing, but it is cold), your not getting circulation through the heater core, coolant level is too low. i had the same prob my front defrost would not work what i found is that it was a small plastic tube that runs the side of the motor that is connected to the vacume. those plastic tubes get very brittle and break easy, once i fixed that tube my defrost worked
