dry rot

I have an 2002 Gulfstream Prairie Schooner with three slides. It appears that the living room slide and the bedroom outside slide bottoms are covered with about 3/16" plywood. On the outboard edge of each I have what I call dry rot in the plywood. Has anyone dealt with this problem before? I think water has run down the side and wicked into the wood from the edge. I would like to fix it but an not sure what I will get into.

The fix may be to use CPES see Wood preservation, rot repair, and restoration using epoxy resin on boats and homes. I have heard of a number of restorers using it successfully and a number of teardrop trailer builders using it during construction.
