Look it up on YouTube, there is a vinegar flush video for the water heater that will solve your problem. Also, get a flush wand for the WH to clean it and replace the aneroid.

Atwood WHs do not have an aneroid, but Suburbans do.

That smell will also generate from the washing machine water lines, especially if you donít have a washing machine. Flush out both lines which should eliminate the odor.

This is often caused by the AAV (air admittance valve) under the sink needed to be replaced. Cheap and easy. Do a search on the forum for photos.
