Storage Bay Floor replacement

We have a 2003 Class 'A' Gulf Stream. A few of the floors in the storage bay floors are in bad shape and need replacing. Problem is I haven't found anywhere that shows how to replace the floor. It doesn't appear to be complicated, but I'm not sure. Any one have the pleasure of replacing their storage bay floors?

First, why are the floors in bad shape? If water - have you found the intrusion area and resolved it?

I don't think it's a huge deal to replace the floors. First analyze. Second, dismount anything in the way. Third remove the old hopefully intact. Fourth, use the old as template and cut the new boards to size. I would use Pressure Treat Plywood. I assume there is a treatment cloth to make the bottoms water tight.

Have you looked at how your floors are put into place?

Hey Dav L,
I believe at one time or another, before I bought the RV, the fresh water tank leaked. The other thing I see is most likely the other areas the bay doors weren't adjusted correctly. The floors are really weak around the edges is why I suspect that. It looks fairly straight forward lie the flooring is in sections so to speak. Pull off the carpet type stuff, pull out the floor, and then reinstall. The bottom of the RV has metal that is under coated as a belly pan. Nothing leaking from there as far as I can tell. I'm going to redo the wet bay and the frsh water area at the same time. I want to remove the plastic wall in the wet bay, lots of storage area behind it being wasted. Thanks for the response.
