Dynamax bed issues

We have just bought a 2020Dynamax Isata 3 with the full i side slide out. I noticed when I could not get mattress flat when slide is out that the base of the bed is not flat, it drops about 2 inches from the slide portion to the base portion. Does anyone have a solution to make the base of the bed flat? I can only think of getting a piece of flat styrofoam to place under lower part of base, but it would have to be removed each time we put slide in. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

That drop is to accommodate the split mattress.

If you are not original owner....the original mattress is built to accomodate that 2" offset. It appears that maybe the original owner replaced the mattress with something else maybe? That does not.

On the OEM version, the lower section that hinges is 2" thicker than the top section.

How about going to an upholstery or memory foam shop and having a single mattress cut with a step in it; thick for the lower part, thinner for the higher part. Or, instead of cutting down a thick slab, just have them size the overall mattress using thinner stock and bond on a piece of memory foam for the thicker part. Just take good measurements before you go.
