Floor bad by door

My step started saging on one side. Looking at it, the mounting under the camper had pulled down. Looks like this section had been wet for a while. Now im trying to figure out how to replace the wood floor and what ever is underneath that the steps are connected to. If anyone has ever had this problem or knows how to fix it please let me know. Thanks

Mine has the same problem (bought used on E-Bay) the window was not sealed in the door. The PO or the dealer put plywood down and rebolted the step BUT didn't correct the underlying floor so I will have to remove all of it and find SOLID area to start from. Your best bet is to remove the wood and look for solid and replace all the wet and rotten wood.

Take a look at the trhread I started on 5th wheel step cracking. I thought my step was the problem. Turns out that the step was cracked, but the plywood bottom step is weak from water damage. I had this happen on a 1965 Fan TT back befor we got the 5er. I fixed it with little problem. This one poses a bigger problem. Good luck.
