Heated mattress

We have 2504S, we bought used. Does your Murphy bed mattress have electric heat? If so, where do you plug in the heat control cord?
Thanks

I'm not sure if this is the thread you meant to post in, but on our 2503s, there is an outlet on the street side below the shelf near the head of the bad. We will probably never use the mattress heater though.

We don't use it much; I added another at the end of the shelf:

Attaches to the foot of the mattress. Plugs into the nearest outlet, which is the stands next to the bed as pictured above.

We've used it once in 2 years. Could have roasted a chicken on the mattress. Wife loved it and I hated it. We don't camp cold that frequently. We have since put a 3" foam topper on the bed and I assume it would insulate the mattress heat (though I haven't tried it). I'd much prefer a 2-zone electric blanket.

Thanks everyone. I will take another look at the mattress to see if there is a place to plug in the heater control cord. Could be the previous owners replaced the mattress.

Done all the time if you have shore power or have an inverter and good batteries and solar like we do.

We purchased our 2019 special order from the factory. Our connector is mid-point on the top of our mattress just below the sleep surface - just a small connector sticking out of the mattress cover. The cord came wrapped up and in our Owners Pack. We plug it in at the outlet at the head of the mattress intended/marketed for C-Pap machines so it is out of the way and we don't have wires hanging where folks are walking.

If it's at the foot of your bed then easy enough to simply rotate the mattress.

We use the heated mattress in winter instead of turning on any heat in the camper.

I always take a crock pot camping
In fact I used to take 4-5 of them every trip where we had lots of kids camping with us. A huge timesaver and allows you to keep food hot for long periods while everyone takes their time eating.
Bonus - if you've never melted chocolate in a crock pot while camping to enjoy chocolate fondue, then you are really missing out

Killer Mattress

Do yourself a favor and replace the original mattress with a quality mattress...

Even the high end trailers come with mattresses that could be used to torture prisoners...

We replaced the original craptress with a memory foam job from I think "Mattress Insiders" so much more comfortable and if yer cold break out another blanket.

That junk heated thing the trailer came with weighed about 4 lbs and I would have been afraid to plug it in for heat thinking the horse manure filling woulda burst into flames...

Jus' sayin...

Some people, take a shower every day, use hair dryers, run the AC, go out to dinner, use an electric crock pot and a microwave. I don't do that stuff at home and do not do it when "camping." Do what ever you want.
