What's That Smell: Motorhome Odor Identifiers

Motorhome Odors and Smells

What's that smell in my motorhome?

You don’t have to be a mechanic to know when something is out of kilter with your coach. The folks at offer up the following odor identifiers (for smells other than that ripe bouquet emanating from your holding tank):

  • Acrid odor (like burned toast) — Electrical short
  • Burning material or rubber odor — Overheated brakes or clutch
  • Clear liquid with a smell — Brake fluid leak
  • Sweet odor — Antifreeze or coolant leak
  • Sulfur odor (like rotten eggs) — Emissions equipment, propane, or maybe stagnant water in the coaches water system
