Rear Slide - Weight limit/turtling ????

We have a 2007 Surveyor that we just purchased new and have been trying to get an answer on using the rear slide bed when turtled in and also the weight limit on the slide. We would like to put a memory foam mattress topper on the slide but don't want to remove it each time we move the slide in and out. Anyone have know if this will be a problem? We also have gotten conflicting answers on sleeping on the slide while it is turtled in. Anyone know for sure? We can't find anthing in the manual either way or the weight limit on the slideout.

I heard back from Forest River and was told that adding the memory foam is not a problem. We were planning on putting the 1 1/2 or 2 inch foam on. The only restriction on the slide is nobody is to be on it when it is being moved in and out.

We were also told that it is okay to sleep on the unit when it is turtled in.

REar slide

We have a 235RKS rear slide. The dealer told us we could turtle anytime; it does not have to be extended. Weight limit is 1,000 pounds. Hope that helps.

Camping overnight without extending slides (or canvas drop-downs on a hybrid). Just stopping and overnighting in the trailer in "as towed" configuration.

Thanks

I have been told not to stand or put weight on the raised section when the slide is in. the dealer where we bought ours said they have seen a lot of damage due to standing, jumping on the raised section , it separates it from the wall and the entire assembly has to be repaired. we were cautioned by many people during our purchase experience about this.
