Then we just folded up the whole mattress and topper for the front bed and placed it length wise down the center of the TT for travel because we were going out again in a couple of days. I suppose we will roll them and stow them when we eventually store the TT for more than a month and maybe just put them in our garage (for both).
I was wrong. We only got a 3" Cool Breeze topper and it is a FULL size and not a queen size. It was a lot less money than the queen size and covers about 95% of the queen in our TT anyway. Remember, our queens are "short" queens and you would have to cut off about 5-6 inches as a standard queen is that much longer; so why spend more money anyway.

Thanks for this tip. I did check the fuse and sure enough it was blown. Put in a new one and now I am "good to go!"

I added a vinyl shower liner to mine. Several on here have done the same.
Take your track loose that the curtain is in and slide it off. Line up the vinyl liner to the curtain. Some of the holes on the liner will line up to the clips on the curtain, but you will have to punch/cut several holes yourself. Slip the holes in the liner over the clips and slide it back on the track.

That is great info as I would have ordered the Queen. We, too, are planning to use our center aisle, but for our bikes. We will try to do the same as you for the bunk. I don't understand why the front bunk doesn't have room for the topper, like the back but I am sure it will make sense when I can actually see what's going on with that. Thank for answering my questions.

I fold my topper up and store it on top of the cabinet/closet where the TV goes when we're parked.
