Any chance that the bed heaters that don't appear to work are upside down?

Exactly what I said.
That's why I called them "warming" mattresses.

The problem as I see it, that at least the one I had is only 1 control. Wife likes it hot and I want it low or off. We had a dual control blanket. We mixed the controlers and I turned my side down and wifie turned it all the way up. Toasted me out and froze my honey.

Our pups mattress would burn us out. The last trailer's stank. This time we forged the heated mattress and bought heated mattress coveres for the bed. Heat very well and have duel controls.

We turn on the beds an our or more before going to bed and in order to actually feel the heat when getting into bed, you must have a blanket over the bed. Otherwise you cannot feel that they are even heating up. The cover helps hold the heat in. It's easy to think they are not working unless you do this. The colder it gets outside the warmer they start to feel. I have no idea what the actual temp is that they are designed to heat to.

If you have a bed that is hot to the touch, I think that bed might be the one having an issue.

IN the 233s, if the mattress was upside down, they would not fold properly when the trailed bunk ends would fold up. So if you have to turn the mattress to fold up the bunk ends....then yes, maybe

Yes they are right side up, yes I do put blankets/sleep bags over them. No matter what I do 1 gets hot and 2 do absolutely nothing. We're camping this weekend and will give it another try. Have space heaters either way. Should get down to low 30's. Thanks for suggestions.
