Open Range 357 RES slide out floor rotted from fridge leaking

My fridge on my slide has been leaking prior to my purchase and I had not seen it and the dealership won't repair it so I'm on my own. I know there is quite a lot of material out here covering the repair of slide out floors but everyone is a little different and I wanted to ask this community for help and could possibly offer some insight on the process.

Dead center of my living room slide is my fridge and where the damage is located. The floor on the bottom of the slide is sagging heavily also in that same area is my couch and I can move the couch out away from the area and it will slide in with some effort. But ultimately I would like to replace the entire length of the slide out floor but it carries the fridge the range and assorted cabinetry so it would all have to come out anyway but my big question is can I remove the entire floor of the slide without taking the entire slude out of the trailer? And how would you recommend supporting it?

Though Open Range is not a Forest River product, I'm sure our members can provide helpful information.
My only comment is that it sounds like the slideout would need to be pulled out, to be fully repaired.

Seen it before. So go outside and open refergerator access cover . where in your defrost tube. it needs to drip through vent outside to ground. some drip in a cup. Ruined my trailer floor. 5 years it driped till i figured it out. I layered plastic honey comb sheets . I got mine from beer advertisement signs. liquid nails sheet liq. nail sheet till level . Then laminate wood floor . Thicker the better. Foam poster board also works.
