Need to replace floor that is under the slide out

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your RV. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Floor is under slide out about 6 inches but is really rotted so i probably will have to pull slide out off the coach

Which part of the slide is rotted out? I have an RV shop and do these repairs all the time. If you can attach a photo or two to your post it would help. Most of the time you don't have to take the slideout room out. That takes a lot of doing and can be dangerous without the proper equipment.
