I'd also been a little concerned about the noxious niff in my motorhome that was refusing to go away in spite of thorough airing and cleaning. My first thoughts were that decaying smell was originating either from the loo or the grey water system. Then I started to worry about a phrase that instills fear in the heart of motorhomers the world over, water ingress. Maybe my van had sprung a leak and it would cost a four figure sum to rectify the problem - again!
Happily though I've found the culprit. Two months ago an ingredient was taken on holiday, with the idea that it would be converted into a wonderful homemade coleslaw. But no! Instead it lay hiding in a washing up bowl in one of the underseat storage areas. There it quietly festered away and turned into a sludgy pulp emitting an oh so familiar smell, the name of which was eluding me. Yep, it was rotting cabbage! Now the offending article has been removed my van is sweet smelling again - without the need for the drastic chemical blitz or maintenance check that had been planned!
