Air mattress sofa

Looking at a 8528RKWS, was wondering about the air mattress in the sofa bed. Need 2 beds, would the air mattress hold up being up and down every day all the time? Do you take sheets off and on all the time? We are going from a Puma 259RBSS. It's just adults and a dog, no kids.

I can only tell you our experience with the one in our 2009 Silverback. It's been used at different times by my adult kids and by myself. It works well. It gets put away daily when it's used and it's folded up with the air mattress attached to the couch. No leaks, while knocking on my head. I've read about some that leak and gets holes in them but so far so good. Usually sleeping bags are used as the bedding, so they are folded up daily.

Thanks for the info. We were really want to leave the bedding on it and just air it up & down.

We had had good luck with ours.
One small puncture (grandson with toys) but the patch kit provided worked well.
We used to make and unmake it every night.
Now we just put sleeping bags on it.

We love the air mattress and found that a 1-1/2" memory foam topper from Wall Mart made a really big difference to the comfort. When not being used we use it on our front bed for ourselves. If family come then during the day we just lay it on top of our bed till evening.

We just got back from a week of camping with the grandchildren. We left the bedding on when we deflated and inflated. Had to make adjutment to the fitted sheet, but all in all worked well.

On our Air bed there is limited space when deflated and folded up. I would think the (Pinch Point) fold areas would cause problems if bedding were left on while storing. Hey,but what do I know? Youroo!!

That's what I wanted to know. Thought that the sheets would be ok, but take the blanket off.
