I am in the same boat as the poster. The person who sold me the camper says they are working but I can't detect any kind of heat even after one hour or more even if I lie down. Maybe the problem is I tried them in warm weather. I am going to retry now in the cold weather and see if I can detect any heat.

I'd like to get these up and going for camping late in the season and avoid buying some heavy duty sleeping bags.

thomsonr, you may still need those heavy sleeping bags if camping in the cold. We have enjoyed our heated mattresses & they do help, but there is still the air above that you have to deal with. The heated mattresses give you a comfortable heat where you are laying, but it's not like an electric blanket that has heat all around you.

Heated mattress

We have heated mattress pads in our trailer with dual control. I have severe arthritis and our heated pad helps a lot, especially when it is cool or damp. I turn mine on medium an hour before bedtime and adjust it when we go to bed. Boy, this is really roughing it.

Have to cover

You need to cover the mattress with your blankets to retain the heat. The heated mattress is only meant to take the chill off since there is open space beneath the bed

Let's remember that heated mattresses in a hybrid TT, are very different than heated mattresses in other types of RVs.
Some of the responders don't own a hybrid TT.

First trip out the temp dropped into the 40's at Tahoe. A comforter and the furnace were sufficient. We have a memory foam topper and I was unsure if it would be okay to run the mattress heat with that on. From previous responses I guess it is. We will be spending Christmas week at the beach so the weather might be cool enough to want to try the heated mattress.

I'm probably a little off topic, I interpreted this to mean like a "Sunbeam, Heated Mattress Pad." We ordered it when we wintered in Arizona. When we got it, no setting was low enough for comfort. It was a barbecuer! Several years later, I found the paperwork, contacted Sunbeam and they gave me instructions to send it back. After a couple of weeks, we received-probably a new pad. It worked great the first year. We were always very careful folding it away for summer. This year, it indicates it's heating but there's no warmth. When I worked, it was superb!
