I had the issue with my last 5er and ended up putting liquid deodorizer in the gray water tank for the kitchen, problem solved.

little oil

Add a little oil to the drains with p-traps, it will keep the water from evaporating and letting the stink back in. A teaspoon should do.

We had exactly the same issue year before last. We were at Kiptopeke State Park in Va.....I had them move us from the site we were....Camp Host kept telling me it was leaking grey water tank...to cut the covering underneath for closer investigation. Literally, got to sniffing around and discovered it was the battery.....disconnected...no more issues.
