Default Blown out Floor, pipe missing

I bought a 97 HiLo.
Knowing the tires needed replacing, but had to tow it home.
One blew out under the oven. It took out the chincy air duct fender and the OSB floor, trailer wiring and some of the water pipe. here is a pic.
There are two T's and also two extra holes in the floor, whats left of it. One hole is the copper propane, are the other two for draining the water lines (one hot, one cold line)?
One of the T's points up, and not sure where it was directed. The other could point anywhere, even along the floor to a hole, but the other could not point horizontally because it would have hit the other pipe. I do not know how much of the plumbing went out the hole driving.

Anyone done this floor repair before? Seems nothing really structural. I plan to secure the floor back to the wall somehow, maybe angle iron. Mainly need to waterproof the fender well.

I knew trailer would have issues, bought it from a smoker, but my distrust lowballed the price, so I think Im still OK. Can't test all the electrical things since this happened. Only know Fridge works, stove works (hope oven), and lights inside. Can't test roof AC (no reason it would not), or integrity of tanks. I know the black tank leaks, but was not planning on using a toilet, planing to remove it. Found some rot at the rear where the caulking allowed the floor edge to get wet, fatal design flaw. Need to adjust the lift as it is not going 100% up. I think I got the nasty smoker/toilet perfume odor out finally. Smokers are so gross. Cleaned the walls, ceiling and every other surface I could find, steam cleaned the furniture and carpet, but I feel so dirty still every time I go in there. When new tires arrive I will be able to lift trailer enough to remove black tank then toilet and get some demons out of there….. lol
