Rotted Floor In Slide Out How To Replace

Question: My 2004 Cherokee has one slide out and it is rotted out. How can I replace that floor.

Robbie: Wow no good news here replacing a floor is very complicated and normally requires you remove the slide. The floor is the load bearing portion of the slide and will need to be completely replaced and not patched in most cases. I will always suggest you take you slide to a repair facility unless your really good will tools and framing. There is no guide as to how to disassemble your slide but if you tackle the problem be ready to invest lot of hours and a few friends to help with the lifting.
If the rot is minimal there are products to stop the rot and you can just cover with the carpet. Be sure to find and repair the source of the leak or your wasting your time.

Thanks for the Question Good Luck,
