Access to the area under the front of the Murphy Bed?

We recently purchased a 2019.5 Mini Lite 2509S and can't wait to take her out for her maiden voyage. It is sitting in our back yard right now and we have found an issue. My daughter left a slipper on the murphy bed when we folded it up and it is now lost in the area in front of the pass through storage. Does anyone know how to access this area? I did a search of the site but could not come up with anything.

Thanks,
Kurt

Been there, done that with a cell phone. Sadly, there’s no easy fix. For us it was a matter of getting a yard stick and positioning the bed just right so we could slide the phone to a spot we could reach it. Needless to say, we’re very careful when closing the bed now.

Just take off the mattress and you should be able to reach down and get it.

I tried that. My arm is too big. Mind you I'm not a body builder. We can't see the slipper so we are assuming it is in that area because it was on the bed when I folded it up. I lost my headlamp the same way and had to have my wife reach down the side to get it.

Why isn't your daughter looking for it, she probably has more slender arms? And it's hers. When my daughter was younger she was my "reacher" for things I couldn't access like the headlight bulbs in one of my Japanese cars which has areas only a child can reach.

Small mirror or even your iPhone can often spot things. Don't drop either. Example: I have a remote doorbell in my office I sometimes think isn't working so I set my iPhone to video record, walk downstairs to the other end of the house and push the doorbell. Playing back the video affirms it's working -- delivery guys just ain't pushing it.

She can't reach. She is 5 years old and small for her age to top it off. She can reach only half way down or I would have her do it......

we had a rockwood with murphy bed which we traded after 2 trips with it but I think on mine if anything went past bed frame it went into storage area underneath bed.

It probably depends a little on the unit, but I suspect most are like mine. We lost a puck light in there. Since that was no disaster, it stayed there for a while. But the only way was to remove all the screws in one leaf of the piano hinge. Of course, take the mattress off first.
