Smell under sink help please

Help!! There is a terrible smell under sink. I have run water with soap & Clorox. Last night when we came home the entire living room stunk. I have a Sierra 2013 376bhok. My husband doesn't come until Thursday & I don't know what to do

Search behind cabinets and drawers for a previously alive mouse.

Look under kitchen sink for an air admittance valve and tap it a bit, might be stuck open and let smell from grey tank back in trailer. see post. If defective might have to change it.

If your valve is defective, then you need to order similar size. Here is one example from Home Depot

Oatey 1-1/2 in. ABS PTC In-Line Cheater Vent-39012 - The Home Depot

I too had the same thing happen...replaced the valve, helped a lot but still had odor....turned out to be something nasty fermenting in the galley tank....I had always completely emptied grey & galley tanks when leaving campground...big mistake...now I add a gallon or two of water with a couple oz of liquid tank chemical and no more odors.

Good to know. I just replaced the valve so I will now add water and liquid tank chemical.

Thanks for the help!
