Wet mild rotting Subfloor 2008 International

Hello,

I am replacing my floor because the vinyl floor shrunk and pulled away from the sides. I have removed it and found some wet subfloor in the rear probably from a leak on the rear storage door.

The subfloor is a little soft along the joint. Does not appear to be as bad as many of the other pictures I have seen in these forums.

I am posting a picture I am wondering if anyone has some advise on what to do about it. I am hoping I can just let it dry and move on.

Use Minwax Cure Rot on the soft spots.

First and foremost find and fix the leak.

Thanks! I believe I have the leaks sorted. Is there any need to epoxy seal the floor? I am hoping not because I would like to put in a new floor this weekend while I have help.
