Need information on missing floor channel

We have dived into the repair needed on our "new" AS. The first thing was to drop the banana skin and belly pan to remove old mouse infested insulation. There has been some past repairs to the front area and some exterior mouldings missing. But something else looks like it is either missing, or put together incorrectly in regarding the flooring. From the outside view in the unrepaired side there is an L channel underneath the floor, but none in the front section.

I would love to post some pictures, but my darn camera is still in the shop!
Can someone who has done this type of repairs post me a picture of floor edge from the outside of the unit?

wannaroam -- The piece of angle aluminum along the sides ends at the corner posts. I can absolutely affirm from my Argosy restoration that there is no corresponding piece under the front or back floors. I've scrolled thru the pics from my Argosy restoration and don't seem to find any specific photo of that situation. Now you can start breathing again.

Okay, I found one. This is just forward of the door right at the front corner post where the awning bracket attached. The aluminum angle piece is at picture middle and ends at this point with nothing forward.

Thank you very much Bob; I am breathing now.

But probably not for long.
