Odor coming from under pantry

After flushing the tank before leaving the campground on our last trip a couple weeks ago we had an odor of sewage inside the camper before leaving. Figured it had to do with just flushing the system and didn't give it much thought. When we got home the odor was still present but not real bad. I was in the camper a few days ago and didn't notice any odor. Went to prepare the camper today for a trip Monday and there is a horrendous odor again! I isolated the odor to the compartment under the pantry. I opened the door and WOW! There is a partition in this compartment, so I took it out to look behind it knowing that this where the flush connection comes in to the camper. Well I see nothing out of the ordinary. I just know the smell is nasty. It's a cross between sewage and rotten potatoes. I'm at a loss as to why the odor has suddenly appeared. Has anyone had this problem?

Here is what is in this compartment

Check the tank vent from the roof down to the tank. There may be a blockage or disconnection that isn't allowing orders to escape.

I checked the vents and I couldn't see any obstructions or anything. Nor was there any smell coming from any of them.
