Sounds like there is some confusion between a "Sleep Number" mattress and a
"Select Comfort"mattress. The "Sleep Number" is a poor substitute for a "Select Comfort"

Actually, they're the same thing. Select Comfort is the company name. Sleep Number is the trade name for the mattresses.

Well where do we start, first off, we "Love" the SN-Beds, so much so, we have one in the S&B as well in the Motorhome. We did have to do some drilling some holes to run the air lines and we added some length to them so the pump had room to ride underneath in the center. One other thing, I hope you bought yours from the factory and not a dealer. By buying from the factory you save a ton, I Mean A TON of Money, hard to believe the mark up on these beds. Have fun and enjoy the air-bed!

First question to ask is have you ever slept on a sleep number? Try it out before you spend a lot of money on sheets and stuff for it. Not everyone likes them and if you haven't tried them before you will want to try it first.

Thom and I tried one for a few weeks. The bed either went very hard to OMG I did not realize it could get harder to Oops there's the board underneath. We ended up going with a firm European pillow top mattress instead.

Like anything in life it is not for everybody and that is O.K. It is a good suggestion to try one out.

For what it is worth: We slept on a full wave waterbed our entire marriage of 34 years until retiring to the camper.

A Select number was the only mattress that even came close to providing the comfort we were used to with the waterbed.

If its not one of the upper line models you can greatly improve its comfort level by adding a memory foam topper. We have two, both we bought off craigslist and we like them a lot. But again, the cheaper versions are not that comfortable to us, they need additional padding.

I was miserable till I got mine. I like mine like a hammock and the wife hates it. I am a 20 and can't wait to put one in mine!

We have had a sleep number bed for several years in our RV. Yes the pump should be mounted under the bed. As far as mattress pads, etc. just treat it like a normal bed. Here's your tip: Since the space beside beds in RVs is limited it is difficult to make the bed. I called sleep number customer service and they sent me free of charge air hose extensions so you can slide the mattress down toward the foot of the bed while you are changing sheets, etc. Enjoy!

Tried everything to make ours comfortable, it is now in my garage taking up space. Come to Santa Clara, make me an offer and it is yours.

We sleep on one at home and in RV. Wife needs it for comfortable sleep, her # is 20, mine is 80. We were sold years ago after visiting a select comfort store. If you have a store nearby go experience a sleep number bed. Obviously they are not for everyone, but we love ours.

X2 and a memory foam topper works good to.

I have had my sleep number bed for many years, if you find that you feel a whole, just call sleep number and they will send out foam strips to correct it.. I love my bed and would have no other...
