Slide Out Floor Replacement

The floor in my 2011 Montana bedroom slide has rotten floor at the back corners. Wondering what to require when dealer replaces the floor. Yes, have to make sure the leaks are fixed is the first priority. What is the cost range? I think the new floor should be exterior grade plywood. The bedframe came loose from the back wall of the frame so that needs better design and repair. I am not able because of experience or equipment to repair so must rely on dealership. Will appreciate any input before taking it in and discussing with service department. Thanks,

If it's not under warranty I would hire an independent RV repair shop not a dealer.

X2 - or in some cases back to the manufacturer for major repairs if they will do it for you.

Don't think there is a RV repair facility in West Tennessee or for that matter in Tennessee other than dealers. Some people on RV forums report they have done this work themselves so shouldn't be difficult for a dealer (hopefully). The factory (sure Elkhart area has repair shops also) is at least 500 miles one way. Not sure factory would repair it. Probably refer me to the dealer that sold it. I will be at the mercy of the dealer's service department so asking for things to discuss before they begin. Trying to get my ducks in a row. Have done a lot of research on the web including youtube videos. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know where you're thinking of going but I would strongly suggest staying away from Southaven RV. I can only speak for myself but my experience is that the sales side of the house was fine but the service departmemt was so screwed up I'd never go back. Also, the owner didn't care at all.

Your thread title says slide out floor. To do it right it will require removal of the slide, $3-$5k. Check the underside of the slide to determine real condition.
