Water Damage to Floor (water pump compartment)

Mates, I have a 2012 Rockwood Ultra Lite 2304S. After feeling a "spongy" bubble in the linoleum in the rear compartment, where the water pump & water filter are housed, I cut into it and discovered the flooring was damaged. Please see attached pic.

As you can see, there's hardly no room to work in this space. Forward of the water pump is a bathroom cabinet & toilet. In my view, the only way to fix this correctly would be to remove the toilet (no biggie there) and dismantle the cabinet (which seems difficult), pull the cabinet out, fix the flooring, then piece the cabinet back together somehow. Does anyone have a recommendation how to fix this?

Can this be fixed going from the bottom of the trailer and moving up vice trying from the inside and going down? The bottom of the trailer's enclosed, and I have no idea how difficult (or risky) it is to remove the covering on the underside of the trailer.

How about a rough estimate on cost. Any idea how much Camping World or some other shop would likely charge? I bought the trailer in Michigan, but I live in Connecticut (active duty) now, taking it back to where I bought it just isn't practical.

I really love this trailer. It's our first unit, we bought it brand new and have had some great family memories, just the 3 of us and our dog. Any help/advice/recommendation you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

No on trying from below,the floor is a "Sandwiched" unit that is placed on the frame and "Everything" is bolted to it! The walls sit on Top of the floor! The Water damage can "Total" a unit! If the damage is confined to a Non load bearing area you might be able to just bridge over it,if not the Walls and all have to come UP! Youroo!!

Agree with youroo. If the damage isn't causin any structural problems, fix the leak, turn a fan on that area for as long as possible and get a piece of 3/8" plywood, paint it with an exterior paint, and cover that bad area up. At least that's what I'd do.
