Default Burnt insulation under bedroom floor

Howdy, WOGers.
I am attaching a photo of part of our coach's bedroom floor. This resulted when Jack removed an alternator.
The pic is not as clear as I would like it to be but you can see scorched areas on that "floor". I am want to know if that "insulation"(?) should be replaced. What might be the pros and cons of that in y'all's opinion?

TNX,
Liz

Hi Liz & Jack,

There will probably never be an easier time than now to replace it. Use a foil covered heat/fire resistant material. I'm sure someone here will give some guidance on how to attach it in the hot environment that exists in the engine compartment.

The hardest part is making the area clean enough so the insulation will adhere.

Classic quote!!!
Yes, it will work. The other obstacle- how you gonna do this installation with the engine in this area? I couldn't do it- someone really skinny might be able.
