Problems with motorhome

Well, we were on our way to Washington from California when we encountered problems. We had the AC give us problems when we got to Klamath Falls and also a smell like rotten eggs. We had our dog and at with us and felt it would be best to drive back home. We left about 11:00 pm this last Sat. Night and drove all night back to California. We arrived back home yesterday, Sunday, at about 1:00 pm. One issue, my husband thinks, might be the batteries overcharging and boiling over causing the smell and also the converter. He is going to look into it. When we called the owners of the KOA Sat. Night, they came right out and tried to he. They were very friendly, but could not help but were very understanding and said they would credit us 1 night. It was a very small, crowded park and we had to fight Mosquitos just to hook up the car and it was dark. Mosquitos got into the MH and all over us. Then, we got home and found we had no water. Neighbor had shut it off as there was water bubbling up from around the main pies in front of house. Had to call the plumber and he came out and set it up tosh ere we had water and he is coming back today to replace some pipes. When it rains, it pours.

Yes, we've had trips like that too. I'm sorry you had to have the experience. These motor homes are not fool proof. They are complicated and have complicated problems (sometimes). Many times they are simple problems packaged in a confusing manner. Posting your questions in the correct forum here may help. Good Luck! The smell of rotten eggs could also come from your gray-water tank.

Had a similar issue a few weeks ago. Turned out that due to the heat, etc there was no water in the sink trap and that smell was coming from our gray-water tank. After doing some research, we poured some water in all the sinks and in the shower and it fixed it

We don't have a crystal ball to know what problems you are having. Post the problem, what MH & chassis you have, and your location for help.
