Help with weird smell

Ok...this might be hard to describe....we have a 27K2D...We've recently noticed a weird smell when standing near the tongue of the camper. It smells similar to sewer....but similar to dead animal. Before we jump to dead animal...This has been happening since May..so 2 months. The only sewer is at the back of camper and cannot be smelled inside or anywhere else around the camper. It also doesn't matter if propane is off or on. I thought maybe propane leak but propane doesn't smell like that. Any ideas?

can you take a look at the roof and see if there is a tank vent in that area?

Does it smell like rotten eggs/sulphur? If so, it could be your battery.

Yes it does smell like that. Seems like it only smells like that when it is plugged into power. Maybe a bad battery?

flooded batteries do tend to have a rotten egg/sulfur smell while charging. you can always take it in and have it tested to see if its bad. they also need to be "watered" or filled from time to time.
