We just bought an argosy , and after a heavy rain few days ago discovered a leak from the panel above the kitchen cabinet.

I climbed up outside and find few crack around a small vent on the top, so I was wondering if the leak comes from there.

I guess it wasn't a first time , because the countertop behind the oven basically is falling to part , also the back side and all of the "L" shape little brackets were not hold it tight to the wall they were broke off rotten wood pieces as well...
Moved the fridge , and the oven.. and the sink..
And finally I removed the countertop , and moved to the side the cabinet:

So far so good
During a floor cleaning and removing the linoleum , discovered a rotten small section by the oven, and the right side from the door.
I don't want to replace the whole floor, so I was wondering can I just replace that section? Marked with red dots where I saw the line where the 2 panels were sitting next to each other

The rest of the floor under the cabinet looks solid.

I guess the counter top soaked every drop of water like a sponge
So I have a few questions if you guys don't mind.
1, What can I use to seal the top by the vent?
2, What should I buy to make a countertop?
3, Is it practical just keep that old wobbling cabinet and screw it back to the wall and put a new countertop on it? It doesn't seems to me very solid ...
4, the floor .. What plywood , or other wood material I should use ( thickness , brand? ) , and If I just want to replace 1 section , is it screwed to the aluminum bars underneath? I never seen one opened.
I hear about a "magic" Flex Seal on TV shop, and is it a laughable stuff, or anyone actually tried before?
I read somewhere in this forum the most common is the TremPro 635 Polyurethane.
So I guess I should start from the top to fix the leak, and after the floor, and the cabinet.
I am not too fan of the fridge, it is 40 years old, and I don't trust in that gas operation, It is any suggestion to replace to a cheap fridge w/ electric what would fit?
Thank you so much for the help if you guys have any suggestions, I would appreciated, I don't know too much about campers, and would help any recommendation.
