Default Rotten slide out floor

I see some mention of repairing floor on slide out. I will have to do this hopefully after the camping season and am looking for advice. Can repair be done without removing slide out from trailer etc?

What year/model is your FF? I did a 2009/2010 210WBS. Because it's an older slide and the slide's floor essentially rests on the slide motor it's tricky to replace. You have to support the slide to replace the floor. This model didn't have the sofa bed, it had been removed. But it's possible to replace without removing the slide.

My trailer is a 2010 WBS, i bought it last year and did'nt notice the rot at the edge of slide out. It appears the trailer was stored indoors before i bought it and I keep it inside also, I can't see where water gets in.

Mine had the couch removed and replaced with a sheet of plywood. On top of that the previous owner had put a "slats" type of pull out bed. We removed the slats, then the "box" or frame of the cubby and then the rotted out plywood. The picture shows the result. You can see in the older style slides, the floor rides on a single track which is moved in/out by the motor. It's not a well-balanced design either. Water had been leaking in through the window frame. We pulled the window, sealed all around, then replaced and caulked. For the floor we replace the plywood with 3/4 treated and sprayed the underside with the rubberized coating, I think it's called Flexseal? We got it all back together and seems to be fine. I think if you still have the couch it would be a similar fix.
