        The instructions on how to determine number, "fill to 100 and lay down, release air until desired firmness". I laid down and loved it, didn't need to adjust.
        (I've tried different numbers, and keep going back to 100)

          Again, for those with sleep number beds, and especially for those with adjustable bed frames, do you use a 'draw-sheet', and if so, what kind. I use one, and I'm always worried about wrinkles.

              Are you using a draw sheet for caregivers to turn you? If so, you may want to look at the Sage Prevalon Turn & Position System (TAP) 2.0. We changed over to these from draw sheets where I worked, and patients found them more comfortable, staff found they required less effort, and they even allow air flow if you are using a low air loss mattress. They are designed to use with Sage's own air-permeable Chux, but we found other less expensive air-permeable chux that worked with them as well.

                I don't remember anyone talking about regular sheets for sleep number adjustable beds. NL has discovered Knit Jersey Stretchable Contour sheets by Egino. They are terrific. They stay in place, don't pop off the corners of the mattress, and last a long time. Egino only sells contour or the bottom sheet in 28 colors ranging from neutrals to brights to even black. Check them out at https://egino.com

                They have an Oktoberfest sale going on now.

                  We only use the sleep number lycocel ultimate sheet sets. Super soft, tight and easy to move on. They hold up well, im the laundry guy and i like to bleach bedding, they hold up fine to that too.
                  I will check these out gj.

                    Yes, draw sheets to assist with positioning.

                      Bleach is not suggested by the manufacturer for these sheets.

                          We may try those. With so many bed depths now, it's really hard to find some to fit the bed without being way too deep. I wish SN stuff wasn't so expensive or I might have tried them before. I would also love to replace the top cover as I have had many bladder accidents over the years where the "waterproof" mattress covers didn't work and I have big stains. But alas, they are 600-700 to replace. As long as the sheets are on I don't think about them.

                            If you buy sn mattress topper they guarantee it for 10 yrs i think. If anything goes through they replace whatever is neeeded. We have it. Nothing goes through.

                              Unfortunately the 10 year warranty only applies if you purchase the mattress topper at the time the mattress is purchased.

                                NL found a company on the internet who makes new toppers for the Sleep Number Adjustable Beds. You send them your zipper (no kidding) from your old topper and they make a new topper for you. The company is Magic Sleeper and there are instructions at https://www.magicsleepermattress.com...derby=sku_desc

                                SLEEP NUMBER REPAIR
                                Magic Sleeper makes replacement top covers that are guaranteed to fit Select Comfort brand mattresses. We use heavy weight fabrics, Kevlar thread, and high quality foam padding. Whether you buy our top only, or complete outer shell, we guaranty a perfect fit. For those who want to replace just the top only for their Sleep Number bed, simply send us your old top cover only, and we will use its top zipper alignment to produce a new cover. Another option for those who want to save on shipping, is to simply make a marking with a pen onto the top half of the zipper at the center of all four corners, then send us just the top half of the zipper. Magic Sleeper is not affiliated in any way with Select Comfort or Sleep Number Bed.

                                We replaced both of our extra long twin toppers two years ago for $250.00 each. I think the price has increased a bit since then. Here is a YouTube video with instructions on how to remove and mark the zipper:
