The fitting goes on the air inlet side and causes the blower to pull the air out of the mattress, that is, you use the same pump to reverse the air flow.

How to use pump to deflate air mattress

There is an intake port and an exhuast port on your Coleman quick pump. To determine and differentiate you need to turn it on and the one that is blowing air out is the exhaust that you would use to inflate the mattress. That leaves you with one other orifice that is taking air into the pump body. If you put your finger over that one it will suck down like a vacuum cleaner hose. That is the one that you want to attach the plastic adaptor nozzle to, and then hold the nozzle on the fill port of the air mattress. It will come down and into a vacuum state when it is all the way exhausted. Once completely deflated, they are much easier to fold back up and stow away. If you're at home and own a vacuum cleaner with a hose, save the batteries on your pump and use the vacuum cleaner. It will take about thirty seconds with that. Good luck with that.

Do air mattresses deflate throughout the night?

When air mattresses first came out, deflating was a major issue. In the last ten years or so, all air mattresses built don't have that problem unless they have a puncture somewhere.

How do I deflate my air mattress?

Some pumps come with a deflate setting so make sure to check that first. If not, you need to unscrew the cap off the valve and listen to hear that air is escaping. Then remove your shoes and walk up and down the surface of the mattress. Once you have done this a few times, you will be able to roll up the mattress from the end opposite the valve.

How do you deflate the northwest territory queen size air bed

I was confused by this too. Here's the trick:

When you inflate the mattress, you unscrew the square-shaped plastic cap, like this:


But this is *not* the cap you unscrew to deflate it!

To deflate it, you have to unscrew the plastic at the *round* part that's beneath the square cape -- i.e. the part of the plastic that's affixed directly to the mattress. When you unscrew the round part, the entire plastic apparatus detaches from the mattress, leaving a big open round hole where the air rushes out.

It looks like this:

What can I use to repair a small hole in my coleman air mattress?

Hi rh57...

I will recommend that you use some contact cement, and a piece of thin plastic like a plastic drop cloth, shower curtain, etc.
Cut the plastic piece that will be using as your patch about 1" X 1" square.
Locate the hole in the air mattress, deflate air mattress, apply contact cement lightly to the air mattress approximatly 1" X 1" and the piece of thin plastic material you will be using as the patch over both entire surfaces of the patch and mattress...let it all dry about 20 mins.
After it is dry then apply the patch to the hole in the mattress, apply a weight to the top of the patch, let sit about half an hour and you are done
Hole fixed
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I have a Coleman Guest Rest Sleep System and I cannot get the air out of the mattress. I have taken the pump out of the casing and inserted it in the hole for deflating and I can't get it to work.

Is it battery or electricity operated? You might need to replace the battery or hook it up to the right outlet. Follow the instructions in inserting it to the hole. Make sure you press the deflate button and not the inflate button.

If the pump device is really not working, you can temporarily manually deflate the air bed by unhooking the air release nozzle. Press it slightly to allow the mattress to deflate faster. Step on the mattress lightly to force air out a bit.
