Rotten Egg Smell


I have a 2022 Jayco Eagle 317RLOK.

I started to smell a rotten egg smell when I turn on my faucet. The smell will last for 15-20 seconds then will eventually go away. The smell happens regardless if I run cold or hot water. I have drained my fresh water tank and my water heater. What do I need to do next to get rid of the smell?

Thanks for the help!

The smell is hydrogen sulfide gas from your water heater. Here's an article that explains it better than I can explain it here. It is a common issue from time to time.
