Question about Sleep Number bed

Here is what I got,i have a queen size bed,it is 80" long,it is bumped up to the wall and when the slide is in the foot is about an inch from the dresser,i looked at the sleep number beds today and they have a queen that is 80" or a short queen that is 75",My question is will I need to leave a little room at the head of it to keep from crimping the air hoses or can I push it all the way to the wall.

I have the same configuration in my Cayman. The full 80" one will work fine, as the hoses come out the bottom. You'll need to drill a couple of holes in the mattress platform to let them connect to the compressor... assuming that's where you keep the compressor.

We love our Sleep Number bed!

We love ours too. So well that we bought one for home and one for the house in the mountains. Not cheap but the sleep great.

I didn't drill the home into the platform for the hoses on my bed and they fit right along the headboard and take zero room.
I got the short queen because I wouldn't have been able to get around the bed.

For all Sleep Number Bed enthusiasts, remember to deflate the mattress prior to ascending any really tall mountains. Otherwise you may be in for a unpleasant surprise.

FYI....

Thanks. I remembered in time last week. I checked the pressure. It was 100. Didn't blow it out. But I brought it down to 15.
A good reminder
Thanks

Stan, is the 75" a full/double size? I could find no reference to a "Short Queen" on their website. Thanks.

I bought my number bed at camping world. I think camping world is the sole distributor for the number bed short queen. It's 75 inches long instead of the usual 80. A 80 inch won't fit in my diplomat.
I haven't seen the number bed short queen anywhere else. I hope that helps you out.

Sleep Number

I made the error of not lowering the pressure in our sleep number bed while crossing the Rockies our first time. One mattress blew out and it was necessary to replace the mattress with another as they would only ship the replacement to our home address. It was funny later since we were careful to remember the milk and other things in the refer and never even thought about the blow up mattress.

This is part of my check list is to set it at 15 lb. Most people that buy this use them at home and don't need to worry about air pressure. Traveling low, or high altitude will change the pressure inside the mattress. Climbing to a higher altitude will increase the pressure and blow your mattress.
