Slide out leak

Bought our 2012 Knight new and from day one we had a smell coming from the dinning room slide. At first I smelled nothing, but my wife has a better smeller than I. After two years, I could smell it bad. So in Reno I decided to tear into it. Inside of the cabinet has a vinyl covering that looked OK. I took a knife and cut around the inside edges and water came pouring out. What a smell. I then tore out all the fiberglass and foam. Not much left, but I didn't have all the tools I needed to get the job done. Back home I took the cabinet out along with all of the gunk. Got most of the vinyl out and scraped the fiberglass off. I did find the leek. It came from a screw on top of the slide. Now I'm left with a mess. I plan to kill the mildew and dry it out. Then I'll cut pieces of Styrofoam and glue it to the top. The rest will be a 1/8th inch luan covered with new vinyl.
any ideas on the best way to kill mildew? I've heard them all.

Hard to beat bleach/chlorine. Maybe spray some OdoBan OdoBanĀ® - Odor Eliminator - Home
Pretty good stuff that kills viruses and bacteria.
