new member - Need help with floor repair

i have 1999 HD 37wds and the floor around the toilet is very wet. i remove the toilet and flange. the floor was wet down to the foam. the area is about 2' by 2'. my question is there a special way to re-install the floor area? could there be a metal beam around the specific area on this unit?

Hello and welcome to iRV2! Is the leak recent or has the floor begun to rot, etc.?

I would get someone very experienced to evaluate the condition. You'll have to pay for this service. In the long run if you are handy this information most likely will save you lots of $.

the floor is very soft, first and second layer. i found the drain from the kitchen sink to sewer gray tank connection. there is a flex line between the slide and the bath area had cramp and burst in the wall. i don't know how long it was leaking. i only had the unit for a year. i notice one metal beam near the bath cabinet and the toilet drain. after removing the toilet and tiles the wood came up with the tiles.

How handy are you? Are you comfortable with removing the damaged area and replacing the flooring? I'm sure whatever is supporting the floor now will support the new floor, too.

First, if you find the IDIOT who came up with the dim bulb idea of putting carpeting on that chunk of flooring,, Can you thank him for me?

My toilet is on a riser, in the exact same concition as yours (Well it was) I removed all the wood and simply replaced it.. I cut the slab in half and cut a half circle in the proper spot along the edge of both halves, Added pillasrs under the two halves and a support 2x and put it all basck together without carpeting.

IF yours is mounted direct to the floor, not on a riser as mine is. your only option is to cut out that section of flooring,, IF there are supports great, if not I'd add a pair of cross beams so you can do the half and half bit.
