The shower smells odd?

Not the drain but the actual enclosed shower has a funny sewer like odor to it
This is a 2860 separate shower
I put deodorizer in the drain thinking we might be getting some food smells from kitchen sink but we've only done dishes in that sink once and we are very careful to not dump any food down the sink.We always wipe out our dishes before washing them.
Anyway the drains smell fresh it's the enclosure that smells
I left the shower door open when we brought it back to storage and will check it today
Maybe it's the glue or caulking?
Any thoughts?

Check the drain under the shower (should be an access door) ours was leaking at the trap.

So was mine after a recent trip. All those fittings will get loose while TT IS bouncing on the road. Make it a habbit, and check all drain fittings on your TT once in a while.

No leaks, checked the inspection opening and smell test in the inspection area is null.Like I said the drain area smells fresh
It's like the plastic shower enclosure smells odd?

Do you have silicone around the shower enclosure?

In my 2014 sunseeker 2150le the shower enclosure has a weird, almost sweet smelling odor. Think it comes from the plastic?

Gotta be the same smell
I left the door (shower) open for the last 24 hours and the smell is very faint almost gone.
I'm thinking it will go away over time like a new car smell but this one you wouldn't want to bottle
This smell was noticed be for I did any additional caulking

On a lighter note, are you sure there is no dirty laundry in there?

Funny you should say that cause that's where the hamper stays when we aren't showering LOL!
