WE experience 22 degree weather and found icy frost on the side walls between mattress and wall.  How can we prevent this and the windows are drafty by the beds.   Since this is first time using the mh I am finding alot out but that is what you get I guess in buying used.
  Also the mattresses have alot to be desired.  Need to replace them and need to find out where I can get new ones.
The coach is only two years old and wouldn't think they would be uncomfortable.  They give us back problems.
   ThankYou in advanced

Hi again, draft of cold air sinks down wall, warms & releases moisture - or is it warm air cools, reaches dew point & again...bingo...wet.  Maybe insulate with some bubble wrap.  I have thought of this when parked in the sun.  Do you have thermal pane or regular glass & are seals still ok?
Try a pad on the mattress or see if Phoenix still sells a temperpedic made to size.   Call or email Amanda & ask.  I put a topper pad on mine & it is much better.  Oh, is it right side up?

We bought a Memory Foam topper and cut it to size to fit the twin beds. It is a significant improvement (and ours is a new unit)!

Yeah, and make sure the mattress is right side up, as Kevin says.

does right side up mean that the tag is at the top of the mattress?

Yes, Tom--
Barry and Sue posted a while back about the mattress. They said that Carol told them that the mattress has two types of foam on all, except 2008 year, and the the label should be on the top of the mattress--

Sue, correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you Judi. I wanted to make sure that is what I read awhile back before I said anything. Everyone was telling her to make sure the mattress was right side up but not saying how to know.

Frecklesweety:

THE MATTRESS .... oh yes .... there is a top and bottom. And it is not the most comfortable mattress in the world anyway... not even close.

You can feel the difference .. one side is soft and the other side is harder.

We wents to Sam's club when we brought our 2013 - 2350 home and bought a 2-1/2" thick memory foam pad for the top of the mattress and cut it down to follow our matress. We have only taken her out once but it seemed ok.

On our last 2350 we purchased a new inner spring mattress from camping world which was wonderful but it wasn't angled off and it made the squeeze into the bathroom that much harder .... but it was soooo comfy !

I have lower back problems so I am not a happy camper if the bed isn't comfortable .

Good Luck,
Carol  Smile

I know the mattresses are right side up and I put an foam egg crate on them but will look for the memory foam. I don't belong to Sam's anymore but will do a search.  I will check camping world  too.thanks

Bed, Bath and Beyond has the memory form toppers. Twin size fits the long bed.
