Slide out delamination repair

I plan on addressing my slide out delamination after my florida vacation. It was the major repair on my list when I bought the coach a few months ago.

I have a 99 HR Endeavor with the superslide that has the kitchen and couch installed.

Now, I've not spoken to any authorities on the construction of my slide. However, it looks pretty simple.

Hopefully somebody here can fill me in on how the outer surface is put together.

My guess is there's a 1/4" or more plywood cover over the slide frame and the fiberglass facia or whatever that cover is made of with perimeter trim.

Would it be as simple as removing the windows, perimeter trim and all external hardware in prep to remove the fiberglass facia and plywood understructure?

Cutting new plywood, screwing to slideout frame structure and gluing the fiberglass to the plywood and reinslall all the hardware/windows.

I don't see this as rocket science. Just need covered work area and the right materials.

Any advice is welcome...

I am no expert, but I think the current Monaco sidewalls have no Luan in them.

The floor and ceiling do have wood support.

The walls are just a metal frame with the molded fiberglass and gelcoat rigid wall attached to the frame.

Insulation and some kind of wall board are behind the wallpaper on the inside.

Perhaps the older sidewalls are the same.

Someone who knows more will be along shortly, most likely.

The slide out does have wood beneath the outer fiberglass/plastic body panel.

The disintegrating layers of the plywood are falling out of the bottom of the slide out. The front side of the slide out is where the majority of the rotting wood is coming from. The rear end of the slide does not look bad at all.

There are three verticle bubbles on the entire area of the slide out.

I may take some pictures and post. But, it sure is cold out right now.

Pictures:

The first one is a shot from the underside of the rear end of the coach. There is some delamination. Not near as much as the second picture of the front of the slide.

You can see it has completely pulled away from the steel framing. In fact, the side screws were sheared off from the brute force of water expanding to ice.

Looks like the outer fiberglass was glued to the ply wood. I may have to buy a ready made blank sheet of the stuff, cut the window and hardware holes and repaint.
