We will be spending Christmas week at the beach so the weather might be cool enough to want to try the heated mattress.
I have a 2" egg crate topper and use the mattress problem. As others have mentioned, it works better when you're actually lying on it.

I am curious as to how the heated mattresses do with the common hybrid "condensation under the mattress" scenario in early spring and late fall? Do they help the issue, make it worse, or make no difference? I have found rescue blankets, reflective side up on the door itself under the mattress, to almost eliminate it.

They also split so they can be folded for vertical storage.

Free to good home: Short queen heated mattress from 2013 MicroLite .... we live in FL & replaced it after 2 trips out (so maybe only used twice - & never with heat)

Seriously ....if anyone wants it & is in or traveling thru the Tampa Bay area message me & it's yours ...been sitting in our extra room where we keep all our camping stuff for almost 2 years now & I just was never able to just throw it out!
