Wood rot ruining slide out..

Hey guys! Iím new to irv2, and I noticed lots of great posts here. I do have a question..

My girlfriend and I decided to go full time in an RV for a while and I want to have it running great. My 2006 Keystone Hornet has wood rot in the corner of the bedroom right here the slide out is. And it seems that overtime the wood has warped inward. This is a concern because the slide out has a hard time coming in and out. I feel once I replace this, everything will just run smoothly, but I donít know where to start and how to go about it. Iíll provide pictures. Thank you all in advance for the help!

Welcome to the forum.
First issue is to find the leak and stop it. If you don't, then replacing the wood will just result in the new wood getting damaged the same way.

This video isn't exactly what you are looking for, but it describes replacing the floor in a slide out.
