Smell from under fridge??

We've been full timing in our '12 Sanibel 3500 for 4.5 years. Last summer we got invaded by mice. I trapped them all and have seen no sign of any since but we get a bad smell from the pot/pan drawer under the fridge. It doesn't really smell like "dead" but it's pretty bad. I thought there might have been a mouse nest under the fridge but it sits flat on the plywood panel that forms the top of the drawer opening and there are no penetrations through it anyway, there are no openings coming from below. I've painted the drawer and the cavity wood panels with polyurethane but it still stinks. The drawer cavity has always been spotlessly clean. Any thoughts??

It really points to a mouse. You might just have to wait a month for it to disperse.

It's been 7 months and there is no evidence of a mouse even being in that drawer compartment and that's the only place that smells... weird.

It might be in the underbelly beneath that area - between the floor and outside undercovering - you might need to drop the underbelly to check there

I've been in there too replacing faulty sewer valves, no smell there either. That's how they got in though, the first time I opened the underbelly to get at the valves I left it open overnight and they invaded quickly. No smell from the utility space where the plumbing & heater are located either.
