If the smell is in the area of the fresh water connection and tank fill I suspect there is a leak in on of the pipes or the tank itself. I would drop the aluminum covering the underside in that area and take a look, it's held on by screws and easy removable. If you think the problem is in the wall you can remove the fill unit and/or take a look on the inside for a carpeted box in the corner that could be removed.

Ugh ~ the most dreaded of RV issues ~ My first thought is I hope you have some sort of insurance (and that it's covered), my second was take out your checkbook. Shiver me timbers ~ argh!

Hope it's something minor and inexpensive.
