Check the vent pipe. If it has an issue or is fitted with an inline Oakley 39012 style inline vent that is not sealing properly it will cause the issue you describe.

Could be from the gray tank - they smell just as bad as the black tank. Look for an air injector valve under the sink or behind the washer if you have one - they frequently stick open and allow the gas to escape into the coach.

We had the dreaded toilet paper pyramid once. Check to make sure there's not a TP collection that didn't go down.

Does your toilet hold water? If the seal lets the water past the ball valve you will get poo gas into the bathroom. If thats OK. Then check what the other posts suggest. A search for toilet problems will turn up lots of posts.

There are few things more popular then toilet/black water issues.

Make sure your roof vent is not blocked by leaves or something else.

Do you have water in the sink p-trap when you smell the stink? I have the identical 35S and have not experienced this but I always make sure we have water in the p-trap and occasionally let Calgonite swish around in the gray tank to clean it.
Also, there is a Precept Forum on the Jayco Forum.

Thanks everybody!!

Thanks to ALL! great tips and comments. I will be checking the vents tomorrow, The bathroom sink p-trap has water, The smell is only in the bathroom. Yes the toilet holds water. I garage this thing indoors (heated) and have NEVER smelled any "vented" smells, so now I'm on to something THANKS to ALL of you who posted!!
PS Next time I'll look in the precept forum..
