Tip Out Bed Replacement

Hi all, I had such a great response with my last issue I thought I would try again! We are having to replace the platform for the tip out bed in our travel trailer. So it has a piece of plywood over top of Styrofoam and what has happened is when we purchased it the very first trip that we took when we got to our first campsite and opened it it was completely wet. So the wood, as a result was soggy and so we are finding ourselves having to replace it. I just wondered if anybody out of there has ever had to replace the wood and if they might be able to give a little bit of advice. We have searched endlessly through the internet and there are no videos that we could find to help us out. I guess the biggest issue is we're not sure if we have to take off the outside lock bars that lock the tip out to the actual trailer. Any advice would be welcomed and muchly appreciated. Or if anyone has seen these videos and could drop the link in the reply I would appreciate that as well. Thanks guys!

Pictures would help find a solution. Maybe a picture open, closed, and closeup sandwiched wet piece.

I just did a full wood replacement on my hybrid C190 - not the tip-outs though... but did replace nearly the entire floor.
