Think it's going to be under the dash. Can you take the square panel off on the top of dash and look down. There shoud be a fan assembly there along with heater coil.

Can you smell it from outside the coach and is the antifreeze level full? I had an issue with mine when it was new. I could smell whiffs of antifreeze and the level decreased ever so slightly...at first. I also could not see any leaks around the coach. I was at Camp Freightliner and had them check it when I had some service done, but they said that nothing was wrong. The problem continued and my Oasis dealer in Kalamazoo figured out the issue. If not there, then I agree, it may be your heater core.

Ceramic tile. Mine came with a mat but a hated it and got rid of it. It was like a rug. The tile goes all the way under the gas pedal to the bedroom.

I believe the heater core is in this box. The A/C is in it also but this is where the two lines from the rear radiator come in and exit. You can see one line just above the light. I have never had this open so not sure how much is involved. It is at least easy access.

It may indeed be antifreeze but we had an odor coming out of the heater in our LE2150 after it had sat for a long time, replaced the cab filter and the odor went away.

Just make sure that the antifreeze level is adequate. You don't want to find out in the desert.

Ok gents, here is my solution to the sweet smell from the heater. Wait for a couple of days and it fixes itself. Who knew. At least I have some remedies if it happens again. Thanks again guys😍
