Arctic Fox 1150 smell from tank area

I just bought a 2015 arctic fox 1150. It has an unpleasant odor from the holding tank area, especially as it warms up here in Phoenix. it smells like perfume mixed with spices. I've filled and flushed the tanks and the smell remains the same. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas where the smell is coming from?

Sounds like a cover up (scent)!

I'd bet the previous owner didn't properly care for the holding tank "Biome" and instead tried to cover it up with a more powerful scent... Unfortunately there is lots of advertising for products like that. look around the compartment for a scent device, the thing could be attached or simply rolled around to some less accessible area. I got my used camper and it smelled like formaldehyde (from the cheap/unfriendly holding tank additive).
With that said "When in doubt - Air it out!"
