Air Mattresses do have rigid foam

Somewhere I got bad info. All the air mattresses CW sells have rigid foam edges according to the installation instructions for the Sleep Number's. Sooo, it's back to square one until they come back with height of the 9" mattress when deflated. It has to be less than 8 inches.

CW is carrying another inflatable mattress brand that does have the firm foam around the edges. Looking at the CW options led me to believe construction was the same….NOT.

No to lowering the bed. It's as low as it will go with the slide mechanism under it. The bed is also too low as is to be comfortable getting out of the bed. The Sleep Number will raise the height when inflated. I have 20 years of warranty to wear out the motor.
I have a Sleep Number RV Radius King that I got from CW several years ago. It does have rigid foam around the edges and also rigid foam down the middle between the bladders. When I first looked at a Sleep Number bed in one of their stores they didn't even know there was a RV Radius King model. Unless SN has stopped with the rigid foam in this model, it is still there and the SN store people just don't know since they can't sell it. I would like to hear if this is the case now.

Our original mattress was not radius cut so we went with the standard corner.
Our new one weighs less than the old one.
X2 on assembling yourself. Getting the old POS mattress out was difficult, but taking the SN in piece at a time is a piece of cake. Easy job.

Ed, there is foam in the RV mattresses and in the Deluxe it is 6 inches in height. Sooo, deflated, the mattress will be at least 6 inches high. Will go to SN store and test a C2 model which is essentially the same.

They do not sell RV mattresses in SN store. You have to order from SN and get shipped to home.

I replaced my mattress with one from these guys. Let me tell you what a difference it was. If you want to have some great people to deal with please call. I have rounded corners on the lower half and could not find anything that I liked and the person hat I talked to was a great help.

They had me measure the old one and helped me select out the foam and cover. I did not even think about the cover, but they told me that it would be good to use a cool-max cover that is zipped so it can be removed and cleaned.

The mattress cam in only 5 days from Colorado to California. It arrived FedEx and was rolled and packed in a small (6 foot by 18 inch box); I opened the box and found the mattress rolled in a paper with tape holding the shape.

Took inside the RV laid out and removed the packing to find the mattress vacuumed pack in a bag. Opened the bag and look out the mattress expanded out to the full 11 inches thick in lest then 5 minutes.
Let me say, if you are thinking about a new mattress think about t giving www.MattressInsider.Com a call. And also there was free shipping.

Chuck

With having to slide under the closet furniture, my mattress height must be less than 8 inches. That's an absolute number based on my measurements. 7 inches would be ideal but not having much luck finding a 72x80 radiused king.
WaltW,

I got the Sleep Number King Size Radius Corner bed installed, Tuesday, 2/9/16. Sleeps great! To slide under the slide out on our 2016 37FS, we deflate it considerably. Right now, I am sleeping with Sleep Number 100, wife is at 80. Very comfortable and firm. What we really need to deflate to, we haven't discovered, yet, we just set it down to SN#30 or so.

Chuck (cbss) guess you missed the part that those of us with Senecas other than the HJ floorplan can't use a mattress over 7.9" thick…therein lies the problem. Yours is 10" high.

Ric, I run mine down to zero and there's still air in it. That's why I use a plastic tarp on top to minimize the rubbing. Figure the cloth top would wear through pretty quickly. Wonder how (in)accurate the air gauges are? I'm sleeping at 50, DW at 25. After a month on road the sleeping was great…every night.

Well, I guess it would be the bed sheets and cover. So this tarp, are you talking about a "blue tarp" or something else?

WaltW -

We've been looking for a replacement mattress for our 2015 FK as well. I didn't think the sleep number mattress was an option, so I'm glad to hear that you were able to get it to work.

How tall is the mattress when deflated? Do you have to "help" it get under the closet overhang, or does it do okay on its own? Also, do you have the Deluxe model (as opposed to the Premier which looks to be considerably taller)?

I really need to do something - the Denver mattress sucks.

Answering 2 posts here.

When deflated the sleep comfort is a little more than 8 inches. That's why I use the plastic to minimize abrasion. The tarp is brown(ish) and obtained from Lowe's (I think). It's thicker than the blue ones and with a smoother finish.

I sometimes have DW help it go under the washer/dryer cabinet. She can slip in and out with the slide closed, I can't. She maintains it's not necessary.

I tried using some tie-downs to compress the foot of the bed more but stuff still bulged so not canned that.

Sleep Comfort is CW's brand and made by the same company that builds sleep number.
