Sleeper sofa bed legs too short

O.K., here's another problem with our new BT Cruiser: The legs on the bed frame are too short so the bed has a step in it downhill from the head.

The cause is that the sofa is mounted up on the slide-out deck so when the bed is opened the legs (legs and bar) where they hit the floor, are about 3 inches too short. That makes it very uncomfortable to sleep on.

Anyone experience this problem and come up with a fix?

Since a 3" permanent leg extension probably wouldn't "fold up" very well, why not use some of the regular bed leg "jacks" which are approx. 3" ? Can be found at Sears or probably even WallyWorld.
After looking, I find they are called "risers".... Google bed risers.
Seems most are 3" and sets of 4 are 10-15.00

Short legs

Thanks for the suggestion! Went to Wally-World but all they had in this store were the 5 inch legs.

I'll find some somewhere!
