Floor repairs without removing slide?

Hi! I was given a 2002 California by Thor mirage 5th wheel. I pulled up all the flooring yesterday because there was a soft spot. It's a bad soft spot! The main slide on the passenger side has an entertainment unit, fridge, stove, sink etc..... The area at the corner or the slide by the door is rotten through, the two by fours underneath right rotten...... Is it possible to replace these main 2x4s without removing the slide? This is the main floor under the slide out, not the slide out itself! Thanks!

I would think so. Put the slide out far enough before it drops down and stop. At that position you should have enough access to remove the bad section of floor. You could also support the slide from the exterior and lift it slightly to gain a little more room.
I would have no problem tackling it but everyones capabilites are different.
