I know very little about the sleep number beds. Their advertising makes it seem like it would work for everyone. Hoping it does not take away from your thread but how does one know if a sleep number bed has reached it's end of life?
well for me the first 2 years with it were great, but I have had it now for 10 and a few times a week I wake up with back pain.
the chambers do not hold air all night, the remote is failing, and from time to time the air motor wont work. just after I typed my first post me and my gf decided to try take apart the bed and reassemble all the foam pieces and air chamber to make sure everything is where it should be,, we then found mold all over the bottom of the pillow topper and on the air chambers.. funny part was we were told 2 years ago the older sleep number beds had a molding issue ( no anti-microbial protection ) and now that we have a house with a finished basement we have mold ( and we have a dehumidifier that runs 24/7. so we are now bed shopping... ughh
