avenger532, I have yet to sleep in my new 25KS murphy bed. (got it last Friday) I'm thinking the rubber foot is too small and is focusing all the weight on that one spot. I think its a design flaw that should have been evident a long time ago by the manufacturer. I'm going to stop on my way home tonight to pick up a larger rubber foot. I going to follow this thread to see how you made out. Please let us know.

Thanks for the info...that the first thing I'm going to check when we head down to Fort Stevens, Oregon this weekend.

We have a large rug underneath but it wouldn't hurt to remove the round feet and add some felt pads instead.

We also use large pillows up against the back wall to keep things from falling down.

Does anyone have any idea how to clean underneath that area or access it....our outside storage cabinets on the outside do not go thru so we cannot get underneath to clean.

I would agree. The foot is approx 1 sq-in. With 2 people on the bed the weight in one spot is probably approx 200 psi.

I got an email from Rockwood. They want me to being it into the dealer for them to have a look. I will be taking it in after the weekend.

So the original headboard was 4" tall and pretty much just kept the mattress from sliding down
The new one is 12" and keeps my pillows from sliding up Click image for larger version

I'm going to have to take a look at mine. I don't recall mine having any kind of "headboard." What we'd like to do is "fill the gap" at the head of the bed so the pillows would be in the area of the gap and effectively make the bed longer. Maybe if that "headboard" was made so it would fold down into the gap.

The headboard eliminates the gap entirely. At the top of the headboard the gap between it and the wall is maybe an inch.

When our bed is down, there is an approximate 8" gap between the head of the bed and the wall. We would like to use this gap to effectively make the bed longer. You seem to have a much narrower gap.

I have the same gap but making a taller headboard and the slope of the wall eliminates the gap. The wall is sloped 6" in on a 12" rise.
