Bad smell

We have a 2018 wildcat 383 MB fifth wheel we bought new in May of 2018. It has developed a bad smell in the mid bunk room. It smells like sewer gas leaking. Anyone else had this problem? Is there a way to look under the Bellypan without dropping it down completely?
Thanks

Check your air admittance valve.

Valve looks like this and can be under a sink, in a cabinet or behind a washer if installed.

You can unscrew it by hand to remove it. There’s not much you can do to fix it, but you can try shaking it up and down really hard to see if it frees-up the diaphragm and spring if that is the problem. Just screw it back on by hand. If you have PTFE tape, go ahead and put some on the threads before you put it back on. If you don’t have the tape, no big deal — it won’t make any difference.

If you determine this is the problem, whether or not you were able to fix it for now, you should buy a new one made by Studor, Oatey or ProFlo. Don’t buy another black one. You need to get one with 1-1/2” MIP (male) threads for 6 DFUs.
