We have a heated mattress in our queen bed but have never used it.

Guess I feel too guilty about my DD not having one in her bunk bed to use=[

But now you guys going on about how great they are has made me curious

How long does it take for them to heat up generally?

I'm giving it 1-2 hours because of the memory foam.

Turned them on to high (6) a couple hours before shut-eye last night and it was toasty. Even through the memory foam toppers..[/QUOTE]

I was wondering if the heat would go through a foam topper. The stock mattresses are just a tad uncomfortable..

A memory foam is something many of us get. We have two for our beds and I find that it takes a couple of hours of heating up to get through the memory foam. Placing blankets/sleeping bags on top while it heats helps.

Our trailer did not have heated mattresses or a option for it. We instead bought a heated mattress pad at Walmart. Has individual controls and works great. In fact in winter we put it on our bed at home and use it. Last winter we only had to put heat on in our bedroom a couple times and have yet to do so this winter. Helps a lot with the power bill.
