Slide out floor issue

Hi

I just took the TT out of storage ( after a long long winter) and I used it for the week end
When I took the slide out OUT I notice it was like a screw loose and it damage a small corner of the outside part of the floor.
Then the wood was wet and soft.
I don't really trust my Rv dealer and I'm pretty handy,
I would like to know If anybody here had any experience with this and if I can just use a marine sealant to fix it.
Thank you

I guess the seal could be old too. I'll try to fix it too
But I wonder if Marine sealant is ok for the floor?

How is a sealant going to fix a rotted floor?
Best way is to remove the slide, lay it face down, and remove/rebuild/reinstall a new floor.

Wow!

If I send it to the dealership the will try to rip me off like they did before.
I will have to find another way

Why do you think they're trying to rip you off? Cause they charge money to fix things?

If your floor is a solid piece, which most are, there's no real splicing of wood you can do. It's just maybe two layers of plywood and that's it.
Unless it's a high end unit, then those can have floor joists which allow splicing.

Hi

I said ripping me of because the did, the first time I send the trailer for winterizing they didn't do it right the next spring I had a broken pipe, when I went and ask for them to repair it and since the did a bad winterizing they told me the warranty for that was only 6 months!!! ( and that was the winter).
And they gave me a estimate to fix it that was dobble what a plumber charged me.
So for that reason I don't trust them
After checking the floor of the slide out
I notice it was a screw from the corner it came loose and it ripped the lining, I gues the whole thing will have to come out to fix it. 😵
