Just had my hymer steam cleaned and waxoyled. while under there, they noticed a small section of the garage floor, had wet rot, this was right behind the rear wheel. Would this be an easy repair, there is no damp inside the garage so I suspect it's spray off the wheel that has caused it.

Wait until it's completely dry then assuming it is reasonably firm paint over with preservative then use a piece of thin aluminium sheet to cover the affected area + a large overlap to prevent further spray damage. Mudflaps help considerably. Do both sides while you're at it. It is a known Hymer weak spot and you're right - it's spray off the rear wheels.

As Tony says not a major problem and an easy repair. An alternative repair once fully dried out would be to coat the area with a twin pack epoxy resin as used for GRP work, it will soak into the wood giving a permanently waterproof finish.
