This is a HUGE job to remove the room typically this is 20 to 30 hour job in the shop. If you wish I can tell you my experience in removing them.
Ok That might not be a bad idea. I have replaced sections of slide room floors. Allot of times you can just cut them out. The room is allot of work The Awning if it still has one has to be removed and there is a certain procedure to take the tension off them. If you can figure out how to brake the room free you have to relieve the hydraulics Via the solenoid valves. We have always used a fork lift to remove them. I have also used tyranny jacks one on each side. If you do attempt this cut the breakers for the coach, I am sure there is 110V and 12V running through the floor.
In spots that are not soft you can use kilz on the floor, Stuff works great. If you do decide to pull the room and run into a snag let me know. Yeah I guess you got a smokin deal on That!
I talked to them. There is no way to just extend the room, However if you look underneath by each silver ram it can be disconnected by removing 4 bolts on each side. So you do not have to worry about the hydrulics. You do need to look at what the coach manufacturer has going through the slide room, 110v 12 v plumbing etc.

Take a white paint pen and make all your markings. It seems to be easier on your unit to remove the room after talking to hwh. Just be carefully and make sure all your wiring and plumbing is dis-connected.

I talked to another expert he felt you may be able to slide the room out far enough for the repairs.if it is an older hwh room you can extend room out past side of coach to reach the edge of the main floor.If thier are two aluminum tubes under room you can build blocks out of 2 by 4's to set at inside edge of floor on the tubes to support floor edge. Then take the outside 15/16 nut off each hydraulic ram located inside of each aluminum tube. with everything cleared away from the inside edge of room. you would still have to remove the awning but you should be able to slide the room out far enough to replace as much of the main floor as needed. Hope this is Helpful.
