Yes, and if it is the battery, once you get things fixed, add one of these:

They do work, as I can attest with the MG. (And now the Airstream as well.)

Had the same smell your describing. Batteries were bad. Good news is it's an easy fix with a new set of batteries.

Well we never found the gas leak, if it was a gas leak. We checked everything you folks recommended. The persistent odor had a vaguely sour, gas smell, but it could have just been the vinyl and synthetics inside the new Airstream, giving off the gasses that they are made with. After a while I just stopped noticing it, so it probably was just me!
