After you waste your time with the bleach and still have the sulfur (rotten egg) smell, drain the heater tank, siphon out the bottom with a small hose (there will be about a pint or so of water left after normal drain) then pour white vinegar in the drain hole until it starts running out. Plug the drain and fill the tank with fresh water. Let it sit for a couple of hours, drain and flush. If the smell still exists, repeat.

I really appreciate all the timely and informative responses !

I will try the bleach and vinegar methods described in a couple weeks and hopefully that solves my stink issue.

Thanks again,

I stumbled on this Keystone RV Forum with the topic discussing the smell. (I think you have a Keystone, correct?) Maybe this will help?
