Arrow BHS28 sewage smell in front bedroom area

Since a few months ago (we haven't used the toilet until then so far this year as hubby was deployed) we can smell an awful sewage smell in the front bedroom area of our BHS28.

We have no sewage anything in the area of the bedroom... not even anything stored that there that could cause the smell. It most likely is coming from somewhere and just drifting into the bedroom area. We've checked and there doesn't seem to be any leaks, at least none we can see dripping down on to the ground.

Any idea what could be causing the sewage smell to be so strong in the front bedroom area?

If the trailer has not been used in a few months, the P-traps of your sinks may be dry and letting the smell from your gray water holding tank into the trailer. Run some water into each drain and see if that helps.

Also, put some water in the toilet.

Are you sure it is not from the battery boiling dry?

Or something smelly stored in your front pass-thru storage which is directly under the bed?

Thanks everyone. We will check the P-traps, and I'll check in the pass through again. I've never heard of the battery boiling dry... but will check that too. Will it be obvious when I look at it or do we need to take it in for testing?
