Need some more information.
Did you put chemicals in the black water tank?
If so, how long since you dumped the tank?

Do you have a washer/dryer hook up? If so make sure you have some water in drain trap or if not used sealed. Our CC 36 CKTS has a washes/dryer and found that the trap was dry. Also insure that seal on toilet is sealing good with water standing at least 1 inch in bottom when closed.

I also have a CC36CKTS with a black tank smell problem ,it first it was in the storage compartment, that was fixed by the dealer, I don't know how that was done, now that smell is coming from the top drawer in the bedroom ,I noticed that after taking a shower with the vent fan running,the wsher drain has a plug on it, and no smell in the front storage, I have been told all the tank vents are tyed together , any ideas thanks im using chemicals, another factor the toilet bubbes before it flushes when the tank is half full or more ???

Those caps are what is called a vent less air cap they are suppose to let air flow like a check vale but don't always work right. You might make sure you have some water in the trap also that your top cap is not clogged or stop up. After taking the vent less cap off and cleaning the little check vale seal my problem stopped

One thing more to look for, are your batteries properly vented?
We had a similar problem, and it was the battery vent giving us a rotten egg smell.
