Would help if we knew the make, model and year of the rig.

There is a procedure in the boat repair industry to fix delaminated decking from the inside of the boat. The inside layer of fiberglass is routed out/cut out to access the water logged inner core of the deck. The core is then replaced using epoxy and then a new inside layer of fiberglass that is epoxied to the inner core. A special covering is used to smooth and press the new inside layer of fiberglass to seal it to the inner core. Very involved, but gets the job done. Maybe an adaption of this procedure might work for you. Look for information on the Web regarding the steps involved.
Good luck.
JB

If you are talking about the floor that the slide out goes over, no. Just put the slide out all the way. Then replace the floor. Generally speaking, it's easy to remove the inch or so of the flooring that goes under the slide and replace it.

I have a 2011 Fleetwood Discovery and was just told by the dealer that I have the same problem. Plywood that was once attached to the bottom (floor) of passenger slide out is falling down (off). They want $2,500. To fix so I said not to do it and will look at it myself. Get coach back tomorrow. Anyone have any advice?

Providing you are somewhat handy and can work with wood, just take a look. Just rip the old stuff up and replace it.

Bought coach Feb 2011. Only one year warranty. And low and behold extended warranty that you're told at time of purchase covers everything doesn't cover this. Customer service? What's that?

If the damage was from "Misuse" thats one thing, but on a 2011 I would sure as hell be looking at Fleetwood for a better answer than that. Most flooring on coaches is treated and a coach this new what is delaminating I would want to know why, and I would not take the dealers answer either. JMO

I want to take a closer look at it myself and take some pictures. Then I'll contact Fleetwood
