subfloor

Hi guys,
I'm new to the forum and I was trying to get some helpful tips o subfloors. I live in a mobile home and just recently discovered tha the sbfloor underneath my waterheatr (which is in the closet) is quit rotten and nasty, from a water heater leak. Is it possible to just cu out the rotten flooring and replace it. I have done this in my parent house, but I have never had to take the board from under a wall, whic I will have to do in the closet. Any help and or advice would b greatly appreciated. Thanks Oh by the way cheap is better

I would just do usual leave 0.5" - 1" on the inside, add new 2x4 support, glue & screw new subfloor and add 1/4 plywood to cover entire room.
In many mobile homes subfloor glued, screwed and nailed to the point where you have to remove walls.

Thanks for the info. Why should I add the 1/4 plywood to the floor.
May seem like a dumb question, but if you don't know you better ask
