Just read on another forum that there is such a thing as a matress heater for winter RVing.

Does anyone know a source.

p.s I mean an electric type...not a warm body

We have an electrically heated mattress pad. Kinda like an electric blanket, but it's underneath instead of on top. It has dual controls so each side can select their comfort level. Purchased at Wal-Mart.

Sounds like the thing I want. Was it made specifically to put under the mattress as you are doing or was this just the way you decided to use it.

The heated mattress pads are made specifically like that. Put on the heated mattress pad, put on sheets & blankets - and you are all ready to enjoy winter sleeping!
May I also suggest flannel sheets? I never thought I would enjoy them - but hey make a huge difference also! (You can get them for a great price if you belong to Costco)

We got one too. Actually I bought a few... One for David & I (K-Mart) and one each for the Kids (Wal-Mart). I love getting into a heated bed, years of sleeping on heated waterbeds spoiled me! These pads are made to be slept on top of, unlike electric blankets. Only Queen and King sizes tend to have the seperate controls. We use a full-size air mattress but I have a Queen size heated matress pad on it. The extra height of the mattress makes it fit pretty good. Over the heated pad, we have an "unfeather bed" pad. It helps keep the "hot spots" from occurring, when sleeping directly on top of mattress pad with only a sheet between us and pad, we found the wires in the matress heating pad to be slightly uncomfortable and tended to heat in "lines".
