Question Power steering working intermittently!

Hey everybody, I have a 1998 Ram 1500 5.2 with auto trans.

I lost my power steering while driving on the highway the other day( nearing the end of a 40 minute drive ) . Then, while taking the corner on the exit, it suddenly kicked back in, nearly causing me to drive off the road lol. Nothing else happened for the rest of my drive (10 minutes city driving)

The same thing happened on my way back home.

Checked the fluid, was a hair below full. No leaks anywhere. Pump was just replaced a few months ago. The thing that really confuses me is that the old pump leaked fluid, was loud and whiny, but never once did I lose power steering with it. Now this, when nothing appears wrong..

Thanks for the help
