Installing a storage slider

I recently purchased a storage slider that will be installed in my lower storage bay on my 5th wheel. The instructions require that I drill 5/16 holes through the floor of the storage area but the bottom of the trailer is sealed closed and I cant see if I am clear of all wires and piping before drilling. How do I expose the underside of the trailer? I own a 2013 365BHS and looking for assistance.

There is a couple of options. You can unscrew the Tec screws that hold the bottom on but for your small project I would take a knife or box cutter and open an area big enough for you to see what's going on under there. Buy a roll of Gorilla tape and tape it back up once your done. The tape is heavy duty and will re seal the opening. I have taken the whole bottom off and have used the tape. Hope this helps.

I had a factory installed one on my previous fifth wheel. It was screwed directly to the wood floor with self tapping wood screws. I removed it once and it the screws were no longer than the thickness of the floor.
