King Size Air Mattress loosing air

So, I have a 5-year old MH which has a warranty of 4-years on its adjustable air mattress. SO, Im out of warranty both sides of the adjustable air mattress leak daily. The original manufacturer won't replace the existing mattress so I am thinking of simply buying a tilt up bed supplied these days by several manufacturers.

The issue is that the bed frame must raise so that the slides can retract when traveling. Then, open once we arrive at our campsite, after the slide is again opened.

Im not so much concerned with the inflation portion but more concerned with the raising of the head ( like for watching TV) going up and down without major issues. Electricity,etc is already there since the original system required it..

Any ideas???

I had a sleep number in my 07 Ellipse.
One side of the queen bed had a leak, couldn’t fix it. Sleep number has a multi-year warranty. I think I got a new left side for about 75% off. It all goes by the age. After 10 yrs the warranty is over. They shipped it quick too.

Loose air is bad. Much prefer tight air.

I had a sleep number mattress leak under warranty... actually day 2.... they replaced it but I was able to patch the leader with a weighted piece of canvas fabric and Gorilla glue. Kept it for a back- up spare. Nothing to lose trying. Finding the leak was the toughest part. Floating it on a pool or hot tub helps.

I have always wondered if it would work to just unzip the mattress, remove the air cells and install sheets of foam in their place. I assume the foam would give enough so that the bed would still tilt. The air bladder should be repairable if you can locate the leak so you have options.
